President Barack Obama to Introduce USA Network's Airing of 'To Kill a Mockingbird'

Barack Obama will provide a special introduction to USA Network’s airing of the 1962 film adaptation of Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, at 8 p.m. April 7.

“I’m deeply honored that President Obama will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird by introducing it to a national audience,” says Lee, the famously media-shy Pulitzer Prize winner. “I believe it remains the best translation of a book to film ever made, and I'm proud to know that Gregory Peck's portrayal of Atticus Finch lives on — in a world that needs him now more than ever.
