To Kill a Mockingbird

Harper Lee

One of the most beloved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many distinctions: it won the Pulitzer Prize, has been translated into more than forty languages, has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, and was made into an Academy Award–winning motion picture.
