The Lens of Youth: To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
The Searching the Psyche through Cinema continues with the Oscar-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird, a story that unfolds through the eyes of a precocious tomboy who struggles with prejudice even as her father stands against racial persecution.
The post-film discussion will be led by psychoanalyst Sue Russell, Ph.D., and Dan Winter, executive director of the Western Missouri and Kansas ACLU. Co-sponsored by the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center and UMKC.
