To Kill A Mockingbird fans mark your calendars! On April 13, USPS and the Monroe County Heritage Museum will host an event on the grounds of the courthouse featured in the classic 1962 film based on Harper Lee’s novel. Postmaster Kelly Jones and Stephanie Rogers, executive director of the museum, will unveil the pictorial cancellation and commemorative cachet envelope featuring an image of the courthouse and a 2011 Gregory Peck stamp.
The pictorial cancellation and the commemorative cachet envelope were designed exclusively for USPS by acclaimed artist Nicolosi, who will also be at the event. “I am humbled to have been given this opportunity to lend my given talent to the U.S. Postal Service and the great people of Alabama as they celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1962 American classic film To Kill A Mockingbird,” the artist said.
A time for the event has not yet been set.
