Life Advice from Harper Lee
A young fan of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ named Jeremy wrote to Harper Lee in 2006, and asked for a signed photo. He didn’t get one, but instead received this lovely piece of advice from the author that is far more precious.
Harper Lee announced today - on her 88th birthday — that ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ will now be released as an audiobook and e-book.
Happy Birthday, Harper!
Wednesday inspiration from Toni Morrison, born this week in 1931. Morrison is the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Thank you Toni for your amazing books, the world has never been the same since they came out. I know they will continue to inspire future generations.
Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.
