The Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation will host a celebration of Harper Lee’s classic “To Kill A Mockingbird” on the 50th birthday of the publishing of the world-renowned novel.

A literary reading of the book will be held on Saturday, Oct. 16 at Greenbank Farm.

Produced by Uncommon Characters, the program will start at 4 p.m. and will consist of readings from selected text from the 1960 classic. There are no tickets for the event, but guests will be encouraged to make a contribution to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation

“To Kill A Mockingbird” tells a story of the American South before the modern civil rights movement began, as seen through the eyes of a young girl. The novel, winner of the 1961 Pulitzer Prize, has never been out of print in the 50 years since it was published.

Reservations for the creative retelling of an American favorite can be made by calling Doreen Boy at 360-651-7074 by Thursday, Oct. 14, or by e-mailing dboy@sno-isle.org.
