Maryland Public Television (MPT) is sponsoring a month-long celebration of Harper Lee‘s classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird this March. They are calling it The Big Read, and here’s what they have to say about it:

To Kill a Mockingbird is a renowned American novel that has a rare quality: it can be discovered with excitement in adolescence and re-read into adulthood without fear of disappointment. A great book combines enlightenment with enchantment. It awakens our imagination and enlarges our humanity.

During The Big Read, 2,000 copies of the book will be given away to interested children and adults, and there will be art and writing competitions, gallery exhibits, luncheons, free films and panel discussions. Please support The Big Read by reading the book and participating in the activities!
