PUMC BOOK GROUP – To Kill a Mockingbird
Get ready for a true classic read in October! Start by watching the movie or read the book first! To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee’s novel was a sensational when it was published in 1960, winning the Pulitzer Prize and becoming one of the finest additions to middle and high school reading programs. In 1962, the book was adapted into a Hollywood script and filmed, starring Gregory Peck in the role of Atticus Finch. The film was a boxoffice hit and has remained on the list of best films for years. It won three Academy Awards for best actor, best screenplay for adaptation from another medium, and best art direction. It so closely follows Lee’s novel that it is a sure side activity for anyone wanting to read and discuss this month’s read.
The book is readily available at local libraries, through download from the state library system, and through any of the book apps. It’s also available through on-line used book sites or at your local bookstore. The book group will meet on Tuesday, October 27th @ 1:30 PM. Grab the book, curl up for a great read, and join us! All are welcome! Look for ZOOM information as the date gets closer!
Book group members! Please bring abook title in the genre of mystery to the next book discussion for us to decide on for the November meeting discussion. Do a little book talk on the title and we’ll vote on a choice at the end of the October meeting. Thanks!
All are welcome! If you would like to join the discussion, just let the church know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Leave an email address for contact info and then expect an email reminder of the book group meeting a week before. Books can be ordered through on-line bookstores, downloaded through the public library or the NH State library, accessed through Kindle downloads, or ordered through Toadstool Bookstores for curbside pickup at the store.
So, in this time of COVID craziness, keep calm and read on!
