To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all-time favorite stories. It has been awhile since I've read it or seen the movie. While I was listing to NPR the other day there was an interview about the new book called The Mockingbird Next Door - Life with Harper Lee by Marja Mills.
I was really intrigued that Harper Lee and her sister, Alice, allowed Marja Mills to hang out with them for over a year and a half and then wrote this book about their reflections on life and such. Ms. Lee has never been partial to interviews and attention, so this is a really special happening.
We, here at New To You, recently started to sell some of the tee shirts and jewelry from Out Of Print. This is an on-line shop and sells products that highlight books and authors, some in-print and some out-of-print from time gone by. Besides the fact that their products are really fun, the other great thing is that for every item they sell a book is donated to someone in need. They partner with Books for Africa and make this great sharing of literature happen!
One of the items I loved the most was the "Scout & Boo " necklace. When Scout, played by Mary Badam, in the movie says, "Hey, Boo", it always gives me goosebumps! At any rate, the necklace is of two feathers made out of brass with a plating of 14 kt gold. I think it is a charming and sweet tribute to a delightful book and fascinating characters.
So, we have a couple of these necklaces in stock for you. I hope you like them as much as I do. The feathers would also be a great present for someone along with a copy of To Kill a Mockingbird. Hmmm, you could also just use the necklace to hang on your rear view mirror :)
