Monroeville, Alabama


“Delete the adjectives”

I was inspired to visit Monroeville because it is the town that inspired the fictional Maycomb, Alabama from the novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

This book and the film have been important to my family since before I was born. My father was from Joplin, Missouri where his mother taught in a one room school house and his father was once a teacher turned laborer in the mines.
