Welcome if you are visiting because you are on the 2016 A to Z Post Challenge Road Trip This is a series during the month of June celebrating Summertime
“Maycomb was a tired old town, even in 1932 when I first knew it. Somehow, it was hotter then. Men’s stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning. Ladies bathed before noon after their three o’clock naps. And by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frosting from sweating and sweet talcum. The day was twenty-four hours long, but it seemed longer. There’s no hurry, for there’s nowhere to go and nothing to buy…and no money to buy it with.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
What could be more wonderful on a hot June day than to read or reread To Kill a Mockingbird. I have used two of Harper Lee’s quotations from the book in this series of summertime posts. The word sweetness lingers in my mind after I reread To Kill…. a few months ago. Don’t forget you can watch the Gregory Peck movie too. In combination, it will be one of your best memories this summer, I guarantee it. Treat yourself to a summer only Harper Lee can give you.
