Harper Lee: US author of To Kill a Mockingbird dies aged 89

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-35616011

The book remains a towering presence in American literature, telling the tale of a white lawyer defending a black man accused of rape in the Deep South.

It sold more than 40 million copies worldwide and 55 years after it was published, in 2015, she released the sequel, Go Set a Watchman.

Tributes have been paid to the Alabama-born writer, who rarely gave interviews despite her fame.

Former US President George W Bush, who awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2007, said she was "a legendary novelist and lovely lady".

We'll always be grateful to you, Ms. Lee, for Scout and Jem and Atticus and Bo Radley... love

As news that Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, had died started to spread among her fans, they took to social media to pay their respects and to share their favourite quotes.

The story of a white lawyer defending a black man accused of rape in America's deep South inspired a generation and inspired some great lines.

My favorite:

"There's just one kind of folks. Folks."

Rest in peace, Harper Lee. We will forever grateful to you for giving us Scout and Jem, Boo Radley and Tom Robinson, Aunt Alexandra and most of all Atticus Finch.
