I have a question on a english paper and i dont remember this part of the book. Its from To Kill a Mockingbird. What remarkable event prompted the officials to close the school?
Please help! I have been going through the book for three days and its due tomorrow!
Even though Scout and Jem gather Miss Maudie's snow in addition to the snow in their own yard, they have to use dirt also to build their snow man. This makes the episode a bit comical. As much as the kids want to "build up" the event, the snow fall has really been quite small.
For Alabama, it was an unusual event that caused the closing of the Maycomb schools. It snowed in Maycomb for the first time "since 1885"--nearly 50 years--so, like in many Northern towns, school was closed, giving the children a free day in which to play in the snow. (Chapter 8)
