Remembering Harper Lee, Author of To Kill a Mockingbird, & Her Famous Writer’s Digest Quote

In honor of the great Harper Lee’s passing, we’d like to share her writing advice from the September 1961 Writer’s Digest:

“I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career,
that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide.”
—Harper Lee
