You can find this quote in Chapter 16.  However, you will not be able to find any specific name for the person who speaks it.  We know it is a man, but we do not know his name.

The man who says this about Atticus is described as a member of the "Idler's Club."  These are a bunch of old men who hang around the court house and watch trials.  Usually, they are the only ones there.

A group of them are talking about Atticus.  Most of them are saying relatively mean things about him.  They are upset because he is going to defend Tom Robinson in a serious way.  But the man who calls him a "deep reader" seems to be serious -- the description seems genuine and not sarcastic.
