The impact of 'Mockingbird'

If the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" is one of your favorites, then this story by a husband and wife writing team will make you feel good.
So time flies, but can it be possible that 50 years have passed since Mockingbird first hit the public prints? Yes, it is true: J.B. Lippincott and Co. (since merged into HarperCollins) released this novel on July 11, 1960. (The movie followed in 1962.) Now available in more than 40 languages and still (amazingly) selling upward of 750,000 copies a year, this masterwork of Alabama native Harper Lee has had an impact on the lives of countless people -- and most certainly the co-authors of this article.
