The ABA Journal reports that Pleasantville, a novel by Attica Locke, will receive the 2016 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction. Locke is the sixth winner of the award, which is given annually to a work of fiction that best illuminates the role of lawyers in society. The selection committee said Pleasantville takes “us out of a courtroom and into a lawyer’s home and heart.” Locke will be honored at a ceremony Sept. 22 at the Library of Congress.
