And the winner of The Great American Read is:
To Kill a Mockingbird, Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It is the required novel of ninth grade English classes.
The literary genre is southern gothic, coming-of-age fiction and bildungsroman.
Since I had no idea what bildungsroman means I figured you did not know either. Here you go. Try to use it in your daily conversation today.
Bildungsroman is a noun meaning a novel dealing with one person’s formative years or spiritual education.
If you have never read this classic, read it now. If you have read it multiple times, read it again. This is especially true in these troubled times we are experiencing.
Perhaps you can read it while you wait in line to cast your ballot for your candidates in the mid-term elections. Please vote and exercise your right. Remember people die every day for our right to do this. Everyone should have the freedom to make their voice heard. Right, Scout?
