A classic book, a classic film. Celebrate 50 years of a literary icon. To Kill A Mockingbird was Harper Lee's only published book. Read more about her life in the YA book I am Scout by Charles J. Shields, or his book for the adult audience, Mockingbird. Both are excellent reads and give the reader insight into the world of Harper Lee and the world of her memorable characters.
A website has been established with videos, sweepstakes, and information.
