Fundraiser: Reception and theatre tickets "To Kill a Mockingbird". A block of tickets has been secured for LWVCA to purchase, and the play will be preceded by a reception in the theatre's drawing room. One of the best-loved stories of all time, Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird is a gripping, heart- wrenching story of a little girl named Scout, her brother Jem and her friend Dill growing up to confront the light and the darkness of the world they have been born into. From the guidance of Scout's father, they come to learn that "you never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb in his skin and walk around in it."
