Whether or not you read it in high school or college for required reading (or simply inspired reading), author Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird is a book that either you read and know about (or at the very least): heard of, or about.
Her death comes as an ironic time to be alive when life as we live (and know it) right now is being magnified right in front of our very eyes while we pray, protest (perpetuate) or peacefully live through race relations and culturally sensitive matters being on display in ways like never before.
The irony of the Pulitzer Prize winning To Kill A Mockingbird being about racism in the deep south and its author having died at a time like now is more eerily ironic than the author having told talk show media mogul Oprah Winfrey: “Honey. I’ve already said everything I had to say” (when Oprah asked when was she ever going to get to interview the prolific writer).
Harper Lee my 1st favorite author! I always wanted to interview her. She said" honey I already said everything I had to say". #RIPHarperLee
