To Kill a Mockingbird


Book Overview: To Kill a Mockingbird

Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American Read

Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South--and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred

One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father--a crusading local lawyer--risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

Harper Lee
Harper Lee was an acclaimed American author, best known for her 1960 novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" which won the Pulitzer Prize. Born on April 28, 1926, in Monroeville, Alabama, Lee studied law at the University of Alabama but left for New York to pursue writing. She drew from her upbringing to create the racially charged setting of "To Kill a Mockingbird." The novel became an instant classic and is now a cornerstone of American literature, dealing with themes of racial injustice and moral growth. A private person, Lee rarely made public appearances and published very little after her initial success. She released a second novel, "Go Set a Watchman" in 2015, which was reportedly the first draft of "To Kill a Mockingbird." Harper Lee passed away on February 19, 2016, leaving a profound impact on American literature.

  1. Matt Grandbois

    "To Kill a Mockingbird" is an absolute masterpiece that breathes life into the core issues of morality and social inequality. Harper Lee has intricately woven an engrossing narrative that is thought-provoking yet entertaining all at once. Through the charming narration of young Scout, Lee masterfully pens a multi-layered tale that beautifully unfolds the intricacies of humanity. This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel stands as a testament to Lee's sheer brilliance in storytelling, illuminating deep-rooted prejudices within a society under the guise of innocence and childhood curiosity. "To Kill a Mockingbird" is a must-read, impactful literature that will leave an indelible mark on its readers.
