Remembering Harper Lee
Lee was born in 1926 in Monroeville, Alabama. After moving to New York City, Lee began work on Go Set a Watchman, which would be reworked with her editor at J.B. Lippincott & Company and published in 1960 as To Kill a Mockingbird. The novel is now considered classic and a staple of American classrooms for its moving treatment of race relations and the justice system.
Lee’s voice in the literary world will be sorely missed…She was a true icon in American literature. (School Library Journal)
