We are sad to report that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Harper Lee has died at the age of 89. Lee's death was confirmed by the city clerk in her hometown of Monroeville, Ala. and by her publisher, HarperCollins.
The author's 1960 novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, is one of the most beloved books in literary history, winning a Pulitzer Prize for fiction and becoming the most defining work of Lee's career. An earlier version of the book, Go Set a Watchman, was the biggest publishing event of 2015. Read more from cbcBooks here: http://www.cbc.ca/books/2016/02/celebrating-harper-lees-legacy.html
