West Chicago, Illinois - March 25, 2013 - The City of West Chicago is distributing free tickets for a tribute event presented by the West Chicago Public Library for Mayor Michael Kwasman on the first anniversary of his passing this April. The film tribute and book discussion of To Kill a Mockingbird on Sunday, April 14, 2013 from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. takes place at Wheaton Academy Fine Arts Center.

This spring marks the 50th anniversary of the 1963 film which follows the book's themes of racial injustice and the destruction of innocence. Additionally, issues of class, courage, compassion, and gender roles are explored. The book was Mayor Kwasman's favorite, adding to the significance of merging the two anniversaries for a special tribute.
