Classic Lit Plots Most Likely to Happen in 2018

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

When Harper Lee wrote To Kill a Mockingbird, it was a timely critique of racial injustice. Thankfully, the book became recommend reading all over the country and led to enormous change, and now racism has been totally eliminated across—just kidding. There's been a whole lot of reading, but not that much learning, evidently.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here, but I think it is a least a possibility that in Alabama in 2018 there might be an incident where race affects how someone is treated by the justice system. This doesn't feel like a prediction so much as, like...the actual present. Um, hopefully another thing that comes true is that, just like Scout, we will all get to walk around dressed up like ham. And then ham becomes really popular. Ham for prez 2020!
