Harper Lee Born on This Day

Author Harper Lee (Nelle Harper Lee) born in Monroeville, Alabama on this day 1926. (Died aged 89 - 2016)
Her best known book, To Kill A Mockingbird (1960) was made into a successful Hollywood movie starring Gregory Peck. In 2015, nearly blind and deaf after a stroke, she announced she would publish another novel. Go Set A Watchman was published in July 2015. It was written in the mid-1950s and was a “sequel”, though it was later confirmed to be To Kill a Mockingbird’s first draft.
