EASTERN POINT LIT HOUSE AND DUCKWORTH’S BOOK CLUB CELEBRATE THREE YEARS OF GREAT BOOKS AND WONDERFUL DINNERS!

Eastern Point Lit House Duckworths -3 kim SmithEastern Point Lit House co-founder Chris Anderson led a heartfelt discussion on To Kill a Mockingbird, his favorite book, as it is for so many. I hadn’t read the book since junior high school and wholeheartedly recommend that if you haven’t in a long while, do. Although I’ve seen the movie several times since and know the outcome, I couldn’t put the book down and did something I haven’t been compelled to do in some time, which is to stay up and read a book in one night. The themes beautifully explored and woven throughout this literary classic, of racism, social inequality, ignorance, coming of age, good versus evil, raising children in a community (no matter how flawed), bravery, and injustice are as relevant today as when the book was first published in 1960. The masterful story telling by Harper Lee leaves you with a deep sense of hope and compassion for your fellow human.
