Celebrating To Kill a Mockingbird's 50th anniversary

Wednesday evening, I'll be moderating a discussion on "To Kill a Mockingbird," which marks its 50th anniversary this year.

We'll examine the lessons, impact and appeal of Harper Lee's timeless novel -- the only one she wrote. The event, organized by the Enoch Pratt Free Library, will be held at the Northwood branch at 6:30.

If you can make it, please say hello. But even if you can't, just leave a question or comment here and I'll forward it to the panel.

On the panel are Sherrilyn Ifill, University of Maryland law professor and author of "On the Courthouse Lawn: Confronting the Legacy of Lynching in the 21st Century"; Brian Norman, director of African and African American studies at Loyola University Maryland and author of "Neo-Segregation Narratives: Jim Crow in Post-Civil Rights American Literature"; and Jadi Omowale, writer, publisher, and teacher at the Community College of Baltimore County.
