"I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks."

~Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapter 23, spoken by the character Scout

 Going to a celebration of Harper Lee's one and only book.

Here's the party, if you're in Georgia.
 But, I'll bet other states are doing the same kind of celebration on this 50th year.

coolest thing?
 One of the featured authors, Jack Riggs, is the writer in residence/guru at the Florida writing retreat in October that I'm hosting.
 You can come and play and we will recite lines like this:

"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing." - Ch 2 of To Kill a Mockingbird

"Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." - Ch 10 of To Kill a Mockingbird 

"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." - Ch 3 of To Kill a Mockingbird
