Friends of Film to screen 'To Kill A Mockingbird'

Fauquier County Public Library's Friends of Film group is viewing and discussing the award-winning movie To Kill A Mockingbird at 1 p.m. Monday, Aug. 15, at the Warrenton Library. New members are welcome.

"Six-year-old Jean Louise “Scout” Finch (Mary Badham) is growing up in the Depression era of the early 1930s in a small Southern town in this highly acclaimed motion picture based on Harper Lee’s semi-autobiographical novel. Jean’s father (Gregory Peck), the town lawyer, is a wise, quiet man with a great sense of justice who defends a poor, black man accused of rape.”

The film is a winner of three Academy Awards including Best Actor for Gregory Peck.
