Harper Lee 










  I, Harper Lee, was born on April 28th, 1926, in Monroeville, Alabama. I was the youngest of four children. I attended Huntington College, a private school for women in Mongomery, Alabama for a year. Afterwards I transferred to the University of Alabama, which I attended from 1995 to 1950.When my college carreer ended I moved to New York to pursue writing, but got a job as a clerk for Eastern Airlines. When my friends offered to loan me enough money I began writing full time for one year. I quit my job and penned to the first draft of To Kill a Mockingbird. It was 1957 when i submitted the manuscript to a publishing house and began a two-year process of revision. When I recieved my review back, they wanted me to rewrite the entire book and pointed out some good things about it. I didn't give up and continued working on it for two more years. In 1960 To Kill a MockingBird was published and it was my first novel ever written. June 1966 I was one of the two persons named by President Johnson to the National Council of Arts.

Mallory and Ashlen,
Check your facts about Harper Lee. Her father was an attorney and he would have been born in about 1900 - long after the Civil War. Mrs. Nelson

Well, I thought this was a great improvement. I like the collage and the information about Harper Lee is both interesting and factual. I would like for you to edit the writing. Remember always I never i and if a sentence is too long it is okay to divide it up and avoid writing run on sentences. Just a little more to do. I will tell you I wasn't expecting the sound and the volume was turned all the way up on my lap top. Needless to say you woke up my husband and my dog Ellie. I will look forward to the sound on Monday because I am sure you selected it with the same consideration you selected the visual. If you wanted to add a few more pictures to your collage, that would be okay too. Mrs. Nel
