Harper Lee, Of “To Kill A Mockingbird” Fame, Was Born This Day 91-Years Ago.
I read to “To Kill A Mockingbird” in 1968, when I was 14-years old, and was in the U.S. — the first time around (1967 – 1968). I loved the book, though thinking back I had NO IDEA as to the racial overtones or any of that. Just liked the story as it was. I really should re-read it.
I have to make a CONFESSION. Until quite recently I had NO IDEA that Harper Lee was female! Not that I have anything against female authors. I grew up on, and am still an adherent of, Enid Blyton — and she is as female as you can get. Just never realized. I was shocked and delighted when I found out.
She was quite the lady. I really must read “To Kill A Mockingbird” again.
