This election season, we're asking candidates the hard-hitting question "What is your favorite book?" We asked all candidates appearing on the ballot for state and local office. As the election nears, we'll post their answers here.
Paul Davis, Democrat from Lawrence, currently serves the 46th district in the Kansas House of Representatives and is running for reelection. His favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. He had this to say about it:
"I'm probably one of many whose favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I am enamored with Atticus Finch and his willingness to take on a client that made him tremendously unpopular in a small Southern town and how Scout was able to learn some great lessons about life from what he did. It is a great story about how we shouldn't always do what is popular and that there are times when we all need to take risks and stand up for what is right."
Inclusion on this blog does does not constitute an endorsement of a candidate by the library. However, we do endorse the books they've chosen.
