To Kill a Mockingbird

by Harper Lee

Writing is a process of self-discipline you must learn before you can call yourself a writer. There are people who write, but I think they’re quite different from people who must write.

Harper Lee (Bettmann/Corbis)

Written and produced by Dan Stone at the National Endowment for the Arts, 2006.
