Watch Hey, Boo: Harper Lee & To Kill a Mockingbird

Harper Lee is a remarkable writer who penned one of the most beloved novels in American history and then retreated into a life of seclusion. Here, there is an opportunity to explore the ways in which her own life influenced the writing of To Kill a Mockingbird, with particular emphasis on her similarities to young narrator Scout and her father's similarities to heroic lawyer Atticus. The trials of living in a time and place where racial prejudices ran very deep come through clearly.
