Harper Lee: Up Close

…Harper Lee’s only novel has indelibly marked children’s literature since its publication in 1960. While the book itself was of course intended for adults, kids have been drawn into it for generations, whether by the innocent but forthright Scout Finch or her heroic father Atticus. For kids who want to know more about the story behind the story, Kerry Madden has written an engaging biography of Harper Lee for Viking’s consistently excellent Up Close series (10–12 years).
