A picture I took recently while visiting Monroeville, Alabama. This is the towns court house.
What makes this court house so interesting is that this is the place that the courthouse scenes from "To Kill A Mockingbird" were filmed.
Monroeville, Alabama is also the home of the author of that novel, Harper Lee. I find it amazing that someone from such a small rural Alabama town, could write a novel that would become so widely popular and well read.
Another well know author also spent some of his early years in Monroeville and that is Truman Capote. As a matter of fact Harper Lee and Truman Capote were childhood friends.
And then there was my Dad. Not an author, but he was raised 10 miles outside of Monreville. Makes me wonder if any of them every run into each other as children! Probably not, but I just wonder.
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
