FAILURE: Is Atticus Finch a failure?

The book of the week for FAILURE: To Kill a Mockingbird

One of literature’s favorite characters, Atticus Finch, failed to win justice for his client, Tom Robinson, in the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird. But does that mean the Southern lawyer is a failure?

To Kill a Mockingbird is available through the Novel Conversations lending library. Request a set (for free!) for your book club today.

In June, Indiana Humanities is exploring the topic of “failure,” as part of its Spirit of Competition theme.
