“To Kill a Mockingbird Author” Dies at 89

Renowned American Author, Nelle Harper Lee, better known as Harper Lee, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 19, 2016, in Monroeville, Alabama.

Author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning American classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Ms. Lee was not one to pursue fame, not even after the film adaptation of her book, starring Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch, proved to be enormously popular. She remained mostly off the radar for decades, making rare public appearances every now and then while keeping the public waiting for years for her to release another novel. In the mean time, students across America were enthralled by her depiction of the Deep South in the early 20th century, with both the sweet small town life and the dark, sobering aspect of the Jim Crow-Era South. When her second novel, “Go Set the Watchman,” was released in 2015, it was less well-received by critics, but that did not stop it from becoming a great financial success.

Even though her only goal was to write a book for children, Harper Lee left a deep impact in both the literary world and the American social consciousness.
