On this Date...To Kill A Mockingbird

I think we can all agree that there are lots of iconic books out there. Just ask anyone what they think and they’ll give you a few off the top of their heads. The titles may vary and some will be obscure but hopefully, by the very fact that they’re iconic, you’ll recognize them, and I’m willing to bet that To Kill A Mockingbird will be there.  This phenomenon is similar with people’s favorite books. If you ask them to give you a list, and they’re any kind of reader at all, there is a high likelihood that they will say To Kill A Mockingbird in their list. Whether you loved that book or not (how could you not!?) you have to admit that it’s one of the most famous, most iconic, and best books of all time, if not the best.

Today, July 11, 1960, this book was published and the world was never the same. In light of this historic event, we dedicate today’s “On This Date” to a book that challenged, affirmed, and forever rocked the world.

Has it been awhile since you’ve read To Kill A Mockingbird? Maybe it’s time to re-read it again and decide why you think it is honored by many as one of the best books of all time.
