Scout’s Honor

To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee won the 1961 Pulitzer for her timeless tale about Atticus Finch, Scout, and Boo Radley, but did she really write it? In his unauthorized bio Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee, author and Lee scholar Charles J. Shields refutes the rumors that Mockingbird was penned by Lee's longtime pal Truman Capote. He also recounts, from Lee's POV, her partnership with Capote in the creation of his masterpiece In Cold Blood (told, from Capote's perspective, in the deliciously droll 2005 movie Capote). Shields reads from the book in the Second Floor Reading Room. A signing follows at 8.
