Atticus’ Mockingbird by Christine Bennett

Christine Bennet's MockingbirdThis drawing is made from “all the words in Atticus’s speech during the trial.” She did this “after reading To Kill A Mockingbird for the first time.”

She is Lesley University grad, who I met when she was selling children’s books in Lexington and running writing workshops in Arlington.  She is a force of nature for books and living by your own light.

She liivs in the Pioneer Valley of Western MA, close to where I grew up. I’m sharing my first real apartment with my boyfriend and trying to decide if I really need a Kitchenaid Mixer (and if I do, what color to get it in). I thrive in nature and don’t mind getting my hands dirty. I work part-time at the most amazing children’s bookstore in the world (not that I’m biased) and the other part-time at a culinary agency.

Check out the blog she does with her siser about cooking, And She Can Cook, at and Bear’s Bookshelf
