Scout, Atticus & Boo

A Celebration of To Kill a Mockingbird


‘You come away from Murphy’s book with a renewed amazement at what Lee was able to achieve with a single perfect novel’ Entertainment Weekly

First published in 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird is not only a beloved classic, but also a touchstone in literary and social history.

This book commemorates more than half a century of To Kill a Mockingbird, and explores how it has left its indelible mark. Contributions come from Oprah Winfrey, James Patterson, Adriana Trigiani, Scott Turow, Richard Russo, Anna Quidlen and Wally Lamb among others, and they reflect upon what the book means to them, and how it has affected their lives and careers.
