Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac has just reminded me that it's also Harper Lee's birthday. She's written only one novel in her life. Luckily that one novel was To Kill a Mockingbird, which is read by every American school kid between 13 and 15. She was also the childhood friend and helpful writing colleague of Truman Capote. Ms. Lee is noted on pages 110, 118 and 123 in A Book of Ages.
