To Kill a Mockingbird (Book - Audio)

Lead Performer: Sissy Spacek; Status: In Season; Publisher: Caedmon Audio

The immortal choice for a family vacation: Sissy Spacek’s careful reading of Harper Lee’s 1960 gem, To Kill a Mockingbird. Just about every American older than 11 knows the edifying story of Scout Finch, Boo Radley, and racial injustice in a close-knit Alabama town. But the novel always reveals new facets. As a child, you focus on Scout’s vivid inner world; listening to Spacek as an adult, I became preoccupied by Atticus Finch’s high-minded parenting techniques (he puts the Applewood moms to shame) and his uplifting speeches on mankind’s basic goodness.
