Harper Lee was very reluctant to talk much in public, so there are many questions you could ask her. Harper Lee was a very interesting person. She grew up in Alabama, just like Scout, and her father was also a lawyer, so perhaps you could ask her some questions about her background and history. Her sister was also a very interesting person who still worked as a lawyer in their father's firm into her nineties, so maybe you could also ask her questions about her sister, if that interests you. Another notable fact about her is her friendship with another famous author, Truman Capote, so maybe there are some interesting questions there you could ask. Lastly, To Kill A Mockingbird was the only book she published until the very recent Go Set A Watchman, so perhaps you could ask her about the writing of the two novels and the long gap between their publications.
