Vermont Reads 2011: "To Kill A Mockingbird"

VPR/Samantha Fields
Every year, VPR collaborates with the Vermont Humanities Council to support its state-wide community reading program Vermont Reads. The book selected this year: "To Kill A Mockingbird," the 1961 Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Harper Lee.

As part of VPR's week-long series, we are broadcasting live from an auditorium at Burr & Burton Academy in Manchester. We talk to English teachers Sunny Wright and Wil Mackey, two ninth grade classes that have just finished reading the book, and an assortment of upperclassmen about the ways "To Kill A Mockingbird" resonates with them today, 50 years after it was first published.
