As the fall approaches, and summer in Arizona recedes, the temperatures are returning to a simmer (90-100 degrees) rather than a boil. With the cool-ish temperatures comes ramped-up calendaring of events.
One of the cooler events we see coming down the pike is sponsored by the State Bar of Arizona. In an event aimed to raise funds for the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education, the Bar will screen To Kill A Mockingbird. The classic novel by Harper Lee celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and watching the movie version with Gregory Peck may be just the ticket to rejoice in autumn.
The screening will be in Tempe on October 14. I’m planning to attend—probably with my daughters (alas, my wife will be teaching that evening). Come on out and enjoy watching a depiction of the quintessential ethical lawyer, Atticus Finch.
