The Harper Lee Prize was inaugurated in 2011 to coincide with publication of the 50th Anniversary edition of To Kill a Mockingbird, and is a joint venture of the American Bar Association and the University of Alabama School of Law that honors a book length work of American fiction that, in the spirit of Mockingbird, “best illuminates the role of lawyers in society and their power to effect change.” The award will be presented in September of 2016 in conjunction with the Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington D.C.
