Hey, Boo

Watch Harper Lee: Hey, Boo on PBS. See more from American Masters.

Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird is a book I associate with summer. Maybe you do, too.

If you’re a fan of the book (or movie) and haven’t seen Harper Lee: Hey, Boo – about the phenomenon behind the novel and its reclusive author – check it out. The documentary explores the story behind the story, and the interviews with Lee’s sister (still a practicing lawyer in her 90s) are priceless.

And, as long as we're here, another Southern Pulitzer Prize-winner who told the story she wanted to tell and then stepped out of the spotlight: playwright Margaret Edson.


  1. Watertown Public Library has chosen it as their "One Book One Watertown" summer read with lots of programming surrounding the themes and history of the book to happen in September/October. I just picked up my copy yesterday!
