Harper Lee Was Born On This Day in 1926: What to Know About the ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ Author

Harper Lee, the author of the influential and popular novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” was born on April 28, 1926. Her novel has continued to receive wide critical acclaim since it was written in 1960. She had earned a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1961. Then the novel was adapted into an Academy-Award-winning film in 1962 by director Robert Mulligan.

Harper Lee was correct!

Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Cancel Culture, Wokites and radical Berkeley students have at least one thing in common: They do not tolerate opposing ideas. Instead, they are rude, crude and violently opposed to hearing an idea different from their own. Oppressing the right of free speech by others, they have claimed violence is free speech regardless of damage done to innocent non-participants. It has been an excuse for robbery, theft, vandalism and assault on old ladies on the public streets. Obviously, they did not listen to Harper Lee's message(s) in "To Kill a Mockingbird," the book of the 20th Century, as proclaimed by the American Library Association.

The Extraordinary Harper Lee

When I was growing up, interesting young female protagonists were thin on the ground, especially ones who looked and thought and sounded like me. Enter Scout Finch, disheveled, scrappy and precocious, she leapt off the page and into my heart, compliments of Nelle Harper Lee. To Kill a Mockingbird was published in 1960. Instantly successful, it won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and would go on to become the classic of American Literature, selling thirty million copies. So far. A staple of high school English classes, despite its dark adult themes of domestic violence, racism, and rape, To Kill a Mockingbird continues to sell about a million copies per year.
