    Now you know why she moved to New York.

    Poor Harper, a one hit wonder, and heavily edited at that !

    I read this in junior high, some *cough*30*cough* years ago, and I still remember parts of it, as if I had read it yesterday. I can’t say that about most of the books I’ve read.

    it offends southern sensibilities. but, those sensibilities are a whole lot of crap.

    Books should never have to be banned, but read in the context of the time it was made, and the universe it was written in. Can’t stand people get riled up at fx. Movies that just happens not to have all different skin colors represented and translate it as racist. Similar with books should be able to write books with a (in our view) racist character if it can be justified by the author – ofc it doesnt automaticly make good litterature :p

    @Linguist

    I wouldn’t call her a one-hit wonder. Her one book far, far outshines 99% of the prolific authors. If I wrote only one book I would be ecstatic if it was To Kill a Mockingbird…the only book I could ever even think of saying was my favorite (too many great books, but TKAM is always at the top).

    Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me.

    I dropped a dictionary on my foot and broke three toes. And got paddled my mom for using some words that were distinctly NOT in the dictionary.

    Poor Harper? She had two lovely homes, an active social life, and traveled widely, until quite recently, when she was debilitated by a stroke. A one-hit wonder that does the world some good and affords a long and happy life? Onne could do worse.

    I would, however, disagree with Atticus: I know exactly what “snot-nose” means, and it’s very easy to explain.

    Had to ask Bing what the word was. Turned out it was n-i-g-g-e-r and not something to do with a body part.

    It’s also a book that was very well served by the movie adaptation. It’s good to read the book now and then, because there’s more to it than what made it onto the screen. (Fun fact: Dill was based on young Truman Capote.)

    If they ever try to remake it, Gregory Peck will rise from his grave and reluctantly shoot them.

    In the South of that time, bigotry always triumphed over common sense.

    And in plenty of other places, too.

    They weren’t banned. They were simply ignored.

    Ima’s comment suggests that indignation of banning a book that states the obvious fact that bigotry exists is a ‘liberal’ agenda thing
    and the indignation of the (alleged) banning of a Limbaugh book is a ‘conservative’ agenda thing.
    why would sticking one’s head in the sand on bigotry be identified with ‘liberals’
    we are all humans. we have so much in common with each other. we don’t have to be at odds with each other.
    oh, sorry!
    there I go again with those ‘liberal’ thoughts
