Author Harper Lee has died. She was 89. She was probably best known for her book "To Kill A Mockingbird".

I don't remember reading the book but the movie (starring actor Gregory Peck) was pretty good.

Well, yesterday, both she and Umberto Eco ("The Name of the Rose") both died. Quite sad. 2016 hasn't been kind with the deaths of famous people.

I actually remember reading both books during the course of my education. To Kill a Mockingbird sometime in high school, and it's on my list of books to re-read now that I'm many years separated from high school. The Name of the Rose I read my freshman year of college, and I intend to the same with it. Though not right now, as I just finished a book yesterday and chose a new one, and discovered four Michael Crichton novels on our shelf I have yet to read.
