Harper Lee: Loved Ones Hold Private Funeral Without Pomp Or Fanfare

Book2BookMonday 22 Feb 2016

On a day when mockingbirds sang outside the courthouse that inspired her classic novel, author Harper Lee was laid to rest in a private ceremony, a reflection of how she had lived.
A few dozen people who comprised Lee's intimate circle gathered on Saturday at a church in the small Alabama town of Monroeville, which the author used as a model for the imaginary town of Maycomb, the setting of her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird. Lee died on Friday at age 89.
