It has been 15 years since I reread Harper Lee's acclaimed book, To Kill a Mockingbird. My son was in sixth grade and it was an assigned book for him, but of course, I had to read it too! It is just that good!
One of my girlfriends, recently reread the book, and made me aware of this observation (as seen through Scout's eyes). I thought you would enjoy revisiting this passage too!
"Aunt Alexandra was hooking a rug and not watching us, but she was listening. She sat in her chair with her workbasket beside it, her rug spread across her lap. Why ladies hooked woolen rugs on boiling nights never became clear to me."
It is perfectly clear to me! How about you?
Thank you Harper Lee, for giving a shout-out to us rug hookers!
