The world just lost one of its most lauded writers.

Harper Lee, who is best known for penning the Pulitzer Prize-winning book To Kill a Mockingbird and most recently publishing its long-awaited sequel Go Set a Watchman, passed away at the age of 89 in her Alabama home.

As we come to terms with the news and dust off our worn-in copies of To Kill a Mockingbird, fans of the reclusive author are taking to Twitter to voice their thoughts on Lee's passing, as well as stress the impact the Monroeville native had on the literary world.
