and we say goodbye to Harper Lee
The New York Times bulletin I just got in my email reports the passing of Harper Lee, here shown with Gregory Peck on the set of To Kill a Mockingbird. My copy has been read, reread, and re-reread so many times -- I still have the original copy that I've had since I was 14, and that was some time ago. It's pretty dog-eared, the spine is broken, and there are a lot of grimy fingerprints on it, but that just shows how very loved it was. As was its author.
