'To Kill a Mockingbird' remembered

Ten years ago I was asked by KUT radio in Austin to write a remembrance of Harper Lee's classic book To Kill a Mockingbird. Then I read it on the air.


Here it is for you:

They used the first paragraph as an intro (so it's not included in the south file below). Here it is:


"I've been thinking a lot this week about the book To Kill a Mockingbird and my old friend Jennifer Manley. Jennifer was a pretty girl I met on the bus at Austin High School a million years ago. To Kill a Mockingbird was the book we all had to read in school. It was supposed to guide us down the path to adulthood."
