One man’s struggle for justice, seen through the eyes of his children. Lawyer Atticus Finch defends a black man charged with the rape of a white girl in the Deep South in 1930s America.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in July 1960. Instantly successful, widely read in high schools and middle schools in the United States, it has become a classic of modern American literature, winning the Pulitzer Prize. The plot and characters are loosely based on Lee's observations of her family, her neighbors and an event that occurred near her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, in 1936, when she was ten.
