The Help Author- Kathryn Stockett

Kathryn Stockett was born in 1969 in Jackson Mississippi, the same city in which her novel ¨The Help¨ is set. After graduating the University of Alabama she moved to New York City to pursue her dreams of becoming an accomplished author. Although she did not live through the height of the racism she most likely heard the stories first hand from people who were either the victims or the oppressors. Through that knowledge she had the information she needed to write a historically accurate novel.
