It was just announced yesterday that Harper Lee will be releasing a sequel this summer to her Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird, published over 50 years ago. We've already received requests for the book, titled Go Set a Watchman, so hop on the hold list now before you forget. In the meantime, we've compiled a list of books that reference and draw inspiration from the classic.
Mockingbird: (mok'ing-bûrd) by Kathryn Erskine
In this National Book Award winning title, ten-year-old
Caitlin, who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, references To Kill a Mockingbird as she struggles to come to grips with her
grief after her brother is killed in a school shooting.

The Michigan Department of Education announced the SAT will be the state-required free college entrance exam starting in spring of 2016. Since 2007, the ACT was the state's free test. Current students preparing to take the ACT this spring will do so as planned, but changes go into effect starting next year. The College Board, which administers the SAT, won its competitive bid which will be a cost-savings to taxpayers in the long run. To learn more, click here. The Library offers free ACT or SAT test preparation from the LearningExpress Library on our databases page with a Canton library card.
