AADL Productions Podcast: Mary McDonagh Murphy

Author and journalist Mary McDonagh Murphy recently talked with us about her lifelong passion for To Kill a Mockingbird, which culminated during this year's 50th anniversary of the book's publication with McDonagh's own tribute, Scout, Atticus and Boo: A Celebration of 50 Years of To Kill a Mockingbird--a companion book to the soon-to-be-released documentary, Hey, Boo: Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird. The book gathers together various celebrities' first memories of and favorite passages from the book, along with discussions of the novel's value to society both then and now. We spoke with Mary about the enduring appeal of Mockingbird's characters; its place in the canon of American literature; its enigmatic author, Harper Lee; and the wonderful Hollywood adaptation.
