I read to “To Kill A Mockingbird” in 1968, when I was 14-years old, and was in the U.S. — the first time around (1967 – 1968). I loved the book, though thinking back I had NO IDEA as to the racial overtones or any of that. Just liked the story as it was. I really should re-read it.

I have to make a CONFESSION. Until quite recently I had NO IDEA that Harper Lee was female! Not that I have anything against female authors. I grew up on, and am still an adherent of, Enid Blyton — and she is as female as you can get. Just never realized. I was shocked and delighted when I found out.

She was quite the lady. I really must read “To Kill A Mockingbird” again.

I serendipitously stumbled across them when I was idly browsing through the NatG TV online schedule.

We have such a backlog of movies and TV shows ‘on tap’ that we haven’t watched anything on NatG for months. So I had not seen anything about these episodes earlier. I DVRed all three. They have yet to record. I will, of course, let you know.
