Harper Lee's Letter to Oprah

A letter from Harper Lee, the reclusive author of To Kill A Mockingbird appears in the July issue of O: The Oprah Magazine, pp. 151-2. She shares her memories of reading and laments that while growing up she failed realize how fortunate she was to have access to books. Lee asserts her preference for books over "instant information." "Can you imagine curling up in bed to read a computer?" she asks.

Read Kam McHugh's review of MOCKINGBIRD: A Portrait of Harper Lee (Henry Holt, 2006).
