Harper Lee and the Moral Imagination
Christianity | Creative Writing
A Library of Congress survey in 1991 found that Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, published in 1960, was one of the top books (after the Bible) that changed people’s lives. Since that survey, it seems the book’s influence on the subsequent generation has only increased — at least, if the number of pets and progeny within my acquaintance who are bestowed with the name “Scout” or “Atticus” offers any evidence.
