According to news sources, and a lot of people I follow on my Word Blog, Harper Lee, the author of To Kill A Mockingbird has passed away.

Her 2nd book – To set a Watchman – has been on my to read list since it came out. I think tonight I’ll set to to be read next. I’m almost done with Silence of the Stones.

Black 2016 continues. Or perhaps it seems that way to me because those who are dying I revered from childhood and young adult. I’m getting older. So are my heros.
