Marja Mills with The Mockingbird Next Door (Hudson Library, Jan. 27)

For years, Harper Lee, author of the beloved and iconic novel To Kill a Mockingbird, refused interviews and stayed away from most public appearances. In 2001, Marja Mills, then a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, traveled to Lee’s hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, in search of more information about the author. She knocked on Harper Lee’s door expecting to be turned away like many others before her had. Instead, she was welcomed into the home of Harper Lee and her sister, Alice.
