In September, the Alta Branch’s Audio Book Club resumes its weekly acoustical encounters, meeting at 7 p.m., Wednesdays, to listen to Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
Sissy Spacek gives a lilting rendition of this gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice. Lee’s novel views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl as she watches her father, a crusading local lawyer, risk everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
This unique club brings families together at the Alta Branch Library to listen to great literature for all ages. Join this audio journey simply by coming to the library, sitting back and listening. For those with busy hands, feel free to bring a craft to work on while enjoying this classic tale. This free book club is open to ages 8 to adults. New participants are always welcome, and no sign-up is required. Members provide simple snacks and desserts while the library provides beverages to enjoy.
