Is Harper Lee Still Alive?


Harper Lee was born on April 28, 1926 and died on February 19, 2016

She was 89 years old.

Born in Monroeville, Alabama, Lee moved to New York as a young adult. There, she worked in a bookstore and at an airline in order to make a living and support her writing.

In 1960, when Lee was 34, her landmark novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, was published. Dealing with the themes of racial injustice that defined much of the American discourse, the book became a classic.

In the decades that followed, there were rumors that Lee was wring a sequel, but she held off — until her lawyer discovered a manuscript for Go Set a Watchman in 2015. That work had been the first version of To Kill a Mockingbird, and Lee eventually consented to have it published.

Just over a year later, Harper Lee would die back in Monroeville, a couple of months short of her 90th birthday.
