I can't remember what we did when we studied English literature at school. I know we read Dickens one year, but I have absolutely no recollection of what sort of background study we did, if any, or just how we analysed the text. I know we didn't study the same time period in History. . . Anyway, I was curious to see what resources are like nowadays so did a little looking around the library website, and, having just read To Kill a Mockingbird, decided to get out a couple of texts about it.

Bryon Giddens-White, The Story Behind Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird (History in Literature) (Oxford, ENG; Heinemann, 2007).

I borrowed this book from my son's junior high school library. It is an excellent book! I learned several "new to me" things about the civil rights movement as well as about the novel and Harper Lee. I highly recommend it to anyone that is a Mockingbird fan.

Although this is a teen book I found it very interesting. We all had to read To Kill a Mockingbird in high school but this book made the story real for me.
