“It’s only when you grow up and step back from him—or leave him for your own home—it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it.” ― Margaret Truman
This coming Sunday, June 16th, is Father’s Day. In honor of the fathers, grandfathers, and father figures in our lives, this week we take look at a few of the most treasured fathers from literature.
Hans Hubbermann, The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
Bob Cratchit, The Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens
Jean Valjean, Les Misérables, by Victor Hugo
Mr. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austin
Otto Frank, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, by Anne Frank
Charles Ingalls, Little House on the Prairie, by Laura Ingalls Wilder
The Man, The Road, by Cormac McCarthy
Lastly, in Alabama, we could not discuss the beloved fathers in literature without including Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird by Monroeville native, Harper Lee.
