To Kill a Mockingbird Game
This month my neighborhood book club, Readers in the Hood, read the classic To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Yes, we jumped on the bandwagon to pay homage to the 50th Anniversary of this beloved and iconic novel. As part of our celebration, we watched the movie—doesn’t Gregory Peck make the perfect Atticus?—and played the following multiple choice game. My Alabamian parents would’ve called our group of California Girls, “Yankees—through and through”—so I thought we’d have some fun with some of the Southernisms in the book and see just how many we knew.
The winner of our little game won a copy of Mary McDonagh Murphy’s Scout, Atticus, and Boo: A Celebration of Fifty Years of To Kill a Mockingbird. But if your budget is tight, you could also take gift inspiration from Boo Radley. I doubt you could carve soap dolls of all of your book clubbers, but you might consider a pack of Wrigley’s chewing gum or a couple of Indian head pennies—unless you happen to have a spelling bee award just hanging around.
No matter where your book club may reside, it might be fun for you to try your luck at our little game! Just click on this pdf link : TKAM.Game for a printable game y’all can play, too.
Good Luck and Cheers!
