Happy 83rd Birthday, Harper Lee!
Nelle Harper Lee was born on April 28, 1926, in Monroeville, Alabama. The recipient of a Pulitzer Prize and a Presidential Medal of Freedom, Ms. Lee has only published one novel--voted by the Library Journal as "the best novel of the century."
You can find her masterpiece on the third floor of the library under the call number PS3562.E353 T6 1982. Or, if you prefer, you can check out the 1962 movie adaptation, nominated for eight Academy awards, under PN1995.9.J8 T6. Or take my advice: reward yourself after finals by checking them both out!
