While researching the book, he traveled to Kansas with his childhood friend, Harper Lee, who is the author of my favorite book, To Kill A Mockingbird. He also wrote the novella "Breakfast At Tiffiany's" among many others.
He died of liver disease in 1984 at the home of Joanna Carson, the fourth wife of talk-show host Johnny Carson.
On a lighter note, there are also some notable birthdays today. Say what? James Bond is eighty?
|The amazing Tim Burton|
|The crazy talented Elvis Costello|
|Sean Connery in all his 007 FINEness|
Is this a special date for you? A birthday or anniversary perhaps?
