SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

September Book a Day #23: Favorite Literary Prize Winner

To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

Winner of the Pulitzer in fiction in 1961, breaking a 20-year streak of only male winners.  (The last previous female winner was Ellen Glasgow, author of the winner for 1942, In This Our Life.)

 

The movie is pretty damned good, too.  (Just call me a sucker for Gregory Peck.)
