RIP Harper Lee
Harper Lee, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' author, dies at 89

I am really feeling sad. To Kill a Mockingbird was one of my favorite books and movies. One of several of notable people that I would to have loved to have met someday.

Well, crud. I just got back to my desk and saw this. One of my top 5 favorite books, and such a humble woman. I also daydreamed about meeting her and talking about literature.
On another note, I can't bring myself to read that second book that was released last year. I don't want my feelings for those characters to change.

read mockingbird for the first time taking the train across north dakota on amtrak's empire builder between chicago to seattle.

it looked mostly like this:

reading her novel put me in a place i did not want to end.

whenever i catch the film now, i always well up during that scene where scout convinces the mob to leave the jail.

Dill Harris was Truman Capote.

another great classic film in the same vein as mockingbird is 1950's 'intruder in the dust.'

I read it in the fourth or fifth grade but not for school. I think I was sick in bed when I started it. A long time before I ever saw the movie.

The Halloween stalking part was classic thriller that couldn't really be duplicated in the movie.
