Good morning everyone and welcome to the CSLJ Book Club’s discussion of To Kill a Mockingbird. Mockingbird is one of my favorite books so I have really been looking forward to chatting with you all about it and I can wait to hear your thoughts and opinions on this classic book.
I’d like to start off our discussion by introducing ourselves and talking about our overall opinions of the book. To join in the conversation, simply leave a comment with your thoughts and opinions on today’s discussion questions and then check back later on in the day (or later in the week) to read and respond to your fellow book club members’ comments.
- What did you think of To Kill a Mockingbird? Did you like it? Why or why not?
- Where there any parts of the book that you particularly liked / disliked? Why?
- Who was your favorite character? What do you like about them?
- Have you read To Kill a Mockingbird before? Seen the movie? If so, did your opinions or impressions of the book change at all this time around?
