Learn More About This Challenged Book
To Kill a Mockingbird, first published in 1960, is one of the most challenged classics of all time.  In Lee's novel, Lawyer Atticus Finch defends a black man charged with the rape of a white woman. Through the eyes of Atticus's children, Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unanswering honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930's.

So what is it about this book that causes people to challenge it? According to the American Library Association, the book has been challenged for a variety of reasons including:

No matter the reason, To Kill a Mockingbird has sold more than 30 million copies and has been translated into over 40 languages.  It has never been out of print and is a staple of high school curriculum across the nation. (1)
