Mockingbird Marathon

To Kill a Saturday

Hi everyone!

Kevin Marshall here to remind you that we’re just a few short weeks away from “Mockingbird Marathon: To Kill a Saturday” on Saturday (‘natch), November 6th starting at 9:00am.

Luminaries, scholars, students, teachers and personalities from across the Capital Region will take part in a marathon reading of Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird, which celebrated 50 years this year.

More importantly, we’re going to raise awareness and money for Literacy NY of the Greater Capital Region.

To donate online, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

If you would like to donate on the day of the event, we will be accepting cash and check donations. Please make all checks out to Literacy NY Greater Capital Region.

We’ll have updates on readers and other useful and/or fun info as the days tick down. In the meantime, you can pass the time by doing some leisurely reading.

Chuck Miller, TU blogger and one of our readers, writes about his efforts to obtain a replica of the paperback copy he had as a youth.

Roger Green, librarian and another TU blogger, writes about the event and the book on his website.

The elusive and very quiet Harper Lee gives an interview…well, kinda.

As always, be sure to follow on us Twitter (@ToKillASaturday) and check out the event on Facebook.
