7 Lee, HarperLee, Harper(1960) “ To Kill a Mockingbird My favorite book -- the one that inspired me the most when I was growing up and that I would recommend to all readers -- is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Set in the rural South during the 1930s -- a time when justice often took a back seat to the color of a person's skin -- the novel tracks the journey of its characters and their society as they find new meaning in the ideals of justice, liberty, and equality upon which our great nation was founded. By getting to know the different characters in To Kill a Mockingbird, you, too will find new meaning in these values and understand why our nation's rich diversity is one of our most profound blessings. “ Reviewed by Bill C., former U. S. President
