by thiszine

This year, Harper Lee’s Pulitzer winning novel of race and law in the 1930s south, To Kill a Mockingbird turns 50 and celebrations are planned across the U.S. Lee, well-known for shying away from interviews and public appearances, will not be present at any of the gatherings. The novel’s publisher, HarperCollins, is embracing the continued interest in the novel that has never been out of print and is the second-best selling backlist title in the U.S. In addition to its long-standing spot on high school reading lists across the U.S., To Kill a Mockingbird has received additional attention in recent years following film portrayals of its mysterious novelist in “Capote” and “Infamous.”
