To Kill a Mockingbird

A little legend that helped change the world. Can’t imagine a society so racist that a black person can’t sit in a ‘white’ bus seat? Thank this book, at least in part. It’s the world-famous Pulitzer Prize winner that changed America’s mind on race. Just at the crucial moment when the US was fighting a key battle on segregation. How can a book be this powerful? Find out. This is the tale of two kids: Jem and Scout Finch. Of their father: Atticus Finch, a small-town lawyer. And of Tom Robinson: a black man falsely accused of rape, fighting for survival. Most of all – a story of doing the right thing. Take note: “the one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience”.

“No one ever forgets this book.” Independent
