Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird: “A little straightforward but visually arresting. The hanging body position with dangling legs connects the “killing” to the idea of lynching. The letters drawn by my daughter (who is 6) around the dead bird bring the conflict of the children of the book encountering this adult reality. As well as suggest a non traditional childhood logic—this is how Sadie used to write words and sentences where they just fill the space you have and you move on to the next line or space not really worrying if the words break up strangely.”
