I love To Kill a Mockingbird, and I was facinated to learn that, until now, there has never been a full-length biography written about the author, Harper Lee. Just released in May, Charles Shields's work is a facinating look at the life of the author of one of the classics of the 20th century.
For more, read my review in The Hub.

Shields, Charles. Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee. New York: Henry Hold & Co, 2006.

What I'm Reading: Dracula (to continue the League project)
On My Bookshelf: The Night My Sister Went Missing by Carol Plum-Ucci (an ARC for review); Wicked by Gregory Maguire (we're going to see the musical next month) and In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (Harper Lee was his research assistant).
