Sharon Bala Wins 2019 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction

This week, Sharon Bala was awarded the 2019 Harper Lee Prize for her debut book The Boat People, an extraordinary novel about a group of refugees who survive a perilous ocean voyage only to face the threat of deportation amid accusations of terrorism.

The prize, which was authorized by the late Harper Lee, was established in 2011 by the University of Alabama School of Law and the ABA Journal to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of To Kill a Mockingbird. It is given annually to a book-length work of fiction that best illuminates the role of lawyers in society and their power to effect change.
