One of the biggest bestsellers of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird is the first and only novel by a young woman named Nelle Harper Lee, who said that she wanted to be South Alabama's Jane Austen. Lee won the Pulitzer Prize and became a mystery when she stopped speaking to press in 1964. Harper Lee: Hey, Boo explores the history of the novel and offers an unprecedented look at the novelist's life.
