R. I. P. Harper Lee
Last week saw the passing of Harper Lee at the age of 89. Lee is the author of the much-beloved modern classic, To Kill a Mockingbird [F LEE, AB/CD LEE, LP LEE, ebook, and DVD TO]. One can only hope that her passing does not mean her family, friends, and other interested parties will embark upon a money-grab with regard to the rights and ownership of the writer's works and estate.
There had been great consternation and speculation about the publication of her second novel, Go Set a Watchman [F LEE, AB/CD LEE, and ebook] last summer--was it done of Lee's own free will, was she coerced, etc. We can expect more of the same...
Although there are already several biographies and other books about Lee, be prepared for the floodgates to open in the near future. Until then, you can look for these:
Mills, Marja. The Mockingbird Next Door: Life With Harper Lee. [B LEE]
Shields, Charles J. I Am Scout: The Biography of Harper Lee. [YA B LEE]
Shields, Charles J. Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee. [B LEE]
