Harper Lee on To Kill a Mockingbird Adaptation

Lauren at Lux Lotus sends a link to a NYTimes article on To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee and her involvement in an annual Alabama high school essay contest. About the 1962 adaptation of her novel starring Gregory Peck, Lee says, "I think it is one of the best translations of a book to film ever made." Sandra Bullock will star as Lee in "Infamous," an upcoming film about the author's childhood friend Truman Capote. An interesting side note: Lee lives with her 95 year-old sister who still practices law. --Kim
