Watch Harper Lee: Hey, Boo on PBS. See more from American Masters.

I just watched this amazing documentary on Harper Lee, the author of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, which is one of the best books ever written for style and for content. I love watching documentaries and especially documentaries on PBS about creative people I love. Lee was also very close to one of my other favorite writers, Truman Capote, the author who wrote BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (yes it was a scandalous little tiny book before it was a movie). I knew they were close, but I didn't know all the history behind their friendship and this taps into that, too. Lee is alive but does not speak to press and this documentary also debunks the rumor that she is a recluse. I think these kinds of documentaries are very inspiring and motivating if you're any kind of creative, whether you're dreaming about being a clothing designer or a painter...there's a message in there for you, too. If not, then maybe that's the message, too. Happy Sunday!♡
