* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally Lee wrote a book called ''Go Set a Watchman'' about an adult Scout coming to terms with life in the South as the Civil Rights Movement begins to pick steam. However, her publisher/editor was more intrigued by the childhood flashbacks and asked her to rewrite the book based on those scenes, which became ''To Kil A Mockingbird''. Decades later, the manuscript for ''Go Set a Watchman'' was rediscovered and published, likely without the now-elderly Lee's knowledge or consent.

* {{Woolseyism}}: The Italian title of the book and movie is 'Il Buio Oltre La Siepe', 'The Darkness Beyond The Hedge', which is a pretty poetic description of the main theme of both works; not just racism, but also fear of the unknown, whatever is in that darkness that is just beyond the hedge that borders the world we do know.

''Decades'' later, real-life educators began recommending this very technique to parents who wanted to help their youngsters learn to read.
