What if everyone in Henry County read the same book? What conversations could we spark?
Each October the New Castle-Henry County Public Library selects a book and invites the community to read it and connect through a shared reading experience.
We are excited to announce our 2015 Henry County Reads title is "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee.
From the book cover: "The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy, Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.
Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' takes readers to the roots of human behavior-- to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos."
Harper Lee's signature novel is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.
We're offering a limited number of book group packs to existing book groups. Contact David Dyer at (765) 529-0362, ext. 1340, to reserve your book pack.
We're planning many events designed to engage the community about the book and the themes surrounding it. Stop back in the late summer for more details.
