To Kill A Mockingbird is one of those novels so classic, so peerless, that it's sometimes hard to remember that it even had an author.
It only adds to that Great American Novel mythology that Harper Lee never published another book.
Well, all that is changing now.

Such a nice gesture!
Late Hollywood legend Gregory Peck will be honored on Thursday, April 28 by the United States Postal Service and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the First Day of Issue ceremony for a Gregory Peck Commemorative Stamp.
The ceremony will take place in Los Angeles' Samuel Goldwyn Theater, and it will be hosted by Sharon Stone. Other guests will include Laura Dern, Morgan Freeman, and singer Natalie Maines.
Peck's stamp marks the 17th entry into the Legends of Hollywood series, and it features the actor portraying Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird.
What a lovely way to pay tribute to such a phenomenal actor!
Will U pick up some Gregory Peck stamps when they're released on the 28th?
