My parents bought my older sister a set of Nancy Drew books. She didn’t read them; I did.
Nancy Drew’s father was a lawyer, and I didn’t know anything about lawyers when I read those books. After reading all the Nancy Drew books, I discovered “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee with its hero,Finch, a lawyer. This story played a significant role in my becoming a lawyer.
I still enjoy reading for pleasure books that have lawyers as one of their characters, but none have had the impact ofFinch and “To Kill A Mockingbird.”
Never miss a local story.
