Like a nightingale's song, the news of Harper Lee's death was saddening. No one can write the proper words of gratitude that can equal her prose. Her much admired privacy did not allow for a grand good bye from her legions of admirers.
In order to honor the work of Lee, the best we can do is to pass on the love of reading. Like Atticus did with Scout. If we can connect with another and reveal the magic of the written word, we can be sure that Harper Lee would feel we've done justice to her memory.
