MPA LLC Week in Review - July 13-18, 2015 - Harper Lee to CALL for Media
City Center Milwaukee | DAY 252 | THIS PAST WEEK Review of articles not posted include:
July 13 - Barnes and Noble's Harper Lee - To Kill a Mocking Bird Read-A-thon was held on Monday, July 13, 2015, Bayshore Town Center, 5755 N. Bayshore Drive, Glendale, WI 53217.
One of the readers was Chair/CEO Mary Glass, Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC. Her 30 minute reading was from 5:00pm - 5:30pm.
Glass said, "As a civil rights demonstrator in the 1960's in the South, it was important for this read to be heard because it speaks of a time then and a TIME NOW.
It was my first Read-A-Thon but for sure it will not be the last.
MPA LLC has August 6, 2015, the 50-year Voting Rights Day as its first Read-A-Thon. It is to recognize the day and why the celebration through people participation".
BARNES & NOBLE Read-A-thon was in anticipation of the "Go Set a Watchman" book release by Harper Lee on July 14, 2015. Lee's second novel about Atticus Finch, the attorney in the book and picture called, To Kill A Mocking Bird; speaks of practices of segregation and raw hatred in Maycomb County, Alabama.
Go Set a Watchman is said to reveal an opposite side of Atticus and unvealing for Jean Louise Fitch, as an adult. Will this become another American literature read about how Caucasians thought and acted in racism? Given the pre-media coverage, it will.
