We at CCPL were so sad to hear today that Harper Lee passed away at age 89. “To Kill a Mockingbird” remains one of the greatest and most influential novels in American history and Lee will forever be one of America’s greatest authors.
In honor of Lee’s life, we’ve compiled a list of other great books to try if you’re a “To Kill a Mockingbird” fan. Haven’t read “To Kill a Mockingbird” yet? Start out with this recommendation from our staff.
And if watching is more up your alley, check out the unforgettable 1962 version of “To Kill a Mockingbird” with Gregory Peck as Atticus. The movie is also available through our digital Hoopla service, as well as great PBS documentaries about Harper Lee.
How old were you when you first read “To Kill a Mockingbird”? Will you be rereading it again?
