  1. Is this the same Charles J. Shields that wrote Mockingbird? That is exciting news! I have been a member of Charles J. Shields book clubs for years. Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books without a doubt. Congradulatins for getting such a well rounded tactful intelligent director. The University will not regret this descision. Congraduations to Charles J. Shields.

  2. Wow. This is really great news for the university. I have a family friend that is a Shields fanatic that is taking classes at UMW this coming semester… he will be delighted to hear this news (but probably already has).
