Quotation of the Week

“‘When they finally saw him, why he hadn’t done any of those things . . .
Atticus, he was real nice. . . .’
His hands were under my chin, pulling up the cover, tucking it around me.
‘Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them.’”

—Harper Lee in To Kill a Mockingbird

= Available at Sembach Library
