Report on the Second Session of Book Talk held by the English Association
23 March 2017
The Second Session of BookTalk 2017 chose to discuss To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, a novel that holds the sole distinction of being popular yet holding classical status too. The novel was published in 1960 and became immediately popular, and went on to symbolize the genre of American Literature. The character of Atticus Finch is one that has given rise to numerous discussions (both in the academic and the informal circles), especially after the wake of the novel’s much hyped sequel, Go Set a Watchman.
