Novel donation

South Boston News
Halifax County Little Theatre donated twenty hardback copies of the 50th anniversary edition of Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird to the Halifax County - South Boston Regional Library System. The books were secured by Little Theatre board member and assistant director Courtney Griffin from the Young Lawyers Conference of the Virginia State Bar. Little Theatre's dramatic production of the classic opens on Thursday, Nov. 18, and runs for two weekends at The Prizery. In conjunction with the production, Halifax County Little Theatre and the local branch of the NAACP will be hosting a forum on race relations tonight at 7 p.m. at The Prizery called Reaching Out, Coming Together. The public is invited to attend as a panel of six will discuss the racial climate in the novel as well as in our own community. Moderated by Nick Long, the forum will open the floor to questions from the audience at the end of the evening. From left, director Michael Freshour, acting director of the library system Helen Deslauriers, library workers Becky Ball, Tonya Chandler, and Ratia Kirby, and Halifax County Little Theatre president Sandy Slayton. These extra novels will ensure plenty of copies for the public to read before the production next month.
