One of the classics of the modern age is celebrating its golden jubilee this summer and its author remains as reclusive as ever. To Kill A Mockingbird, a story which spoke of themes like racism and honour through the eyes of a child, was Harper Lee’s one-book wonder. Published in 1960, it won a Pulitzer Prize and was made into an Oscar-winning movie. But since 1964, Lee has refused to give an interview. And the 84-year-old is not making an exception now. But more than 50 events are planned across the US to celebrate the book’s publication.
