On July 11, we'll mark the 50th anniversary of "To Kill a Mockingbird," Harper Lee's classic about race relations, class conflict, lost innocence and justice denied.

To help celebrate the occasion, we're giving away HarperCollins' anniversary edition of the novel, as well as "Scout, Atticus & Boo," a collection of essays by such luminaries as Wally Lamb, James McBride, Oprah Winfrey, James Patterson, Richard Russo and Scott Turow.

We'll give away two pairs of the books. To enter to win, just post a comment about your favorite character in TKAM, or about why the book has remained so important after a half-century. We'lll draw the two winners on Friday. And while you wait for the results, check out this anniversary website, which lists events, book club resources and other resources.
