If you had an English class growing up, chances are you have read Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird , a book that deals with prejudice, race, rape, class, and tolerance. This month, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts  brings the classic tome to the stage. If you didn’t re-read the book during 2009’s One Book One Denver , brush up on your Harper Lee trivia before you see the show.
1. The author’s real first name is Nelle, not Harper.
2. To Kill a Mockingbird is a one-hit wonder (it is Lee’s only novel), but it won a Pulitzer Prize.
3. The book is semi-autobiographical. Nelle based the character of Scout on herself. Truman Capote, author of In Cold Blood, was Nelle's childhood friend and the inspiration for Dill.
