Check out this article. It's likely the only article you'll read containing an interview with Harper Lee. Ms. Lee, with only one published book to her name, is one of the most important authors in American history. She won the Pulitzer Prize for To Kill A Mockingbird. This is my favorite graf from the article.
"Ms. Lee lives with her 94-year-old sister, Alice, a lawyer who still practices, and keeps an apartment in New York. She is not a judge in the essay contest, nor does she make any formal statement at the ceremony. Her one stipulation for the contest was that children who were home-schooled be eligible to compete."
Priceless. The whole article makes me smile.
