To Kill an Mockingbird was Harper Lee’s only published novel and it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961. This celebrated novel depicts the issues of racism that she observed as a child in her hometown in Alabama. To Kill an Mockingbird was first published in November 1960. Subsequently an early 1957 version was published in 2015 under the title Go Set A Watchman.
We also highly recommend the audiobook of To Kill a Mockingbird, read by Academy Award-winning actress Sissy Spacek. Performed in her southern accent (Spacek is from Texas), she gives a warm and emotionally nuanced reading of this poignant American classic.
