Tell your family, friends, neighbors, and put it out on Facebook and tweeter (or is it twitter?) about the upcoming panel book discussion and dramatic readings from To Kill a Mockingbird, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction 1961, author Harper Lee, that is being held at the Haltom City Public Library on Thursday evening, August 4th, 7:00 p.m. (Please note that the subject matter may not be appropriate for young children.) This special event is held as part of the library’s 50th Birthday celebration.
Great literature like To Kill a Mockingbird impacts our lives, our thoughts, and our society in so many different ways. Each panelist was selected for their unique insights to this great novel. Bob Ray Sanders, the Panel Moderator, is an award-winning columnist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and author, Dr. Judy Alter, is a retired editor for TCU press as well as being a mystery writer. Mike Cochran, a retired Associated Press Correspondent who covered the John F. Kennedy assassination, has also written several nonfiction books. Haltom City’s Mayor, Richard Hutchison, is an Adjunct History Instructor at TCC and Marisa Hafley is an English teacher who teaches To Kill a Mockingbird at Haltom City High School.
Actors from the Artisan Center Theater will add also their own personal interpretations to selected passages of To Kill a Mockingbird with their dramatic readings from the book.
All this plus you promises to make Thursday evening, August 4th, 2011, at the Haltom City Public Library a night of lively discussions and entertainment that we will all remember.
