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.
