Hi, I’m a high school student from Scotland currently writing a dissertation on racism in the justice system in literature, focusing on The Green Mile and To Kill a Mockingbird. A part of this involves writing about why the authors wrote these novels. Can anybody link me to articles etc where Stephen King details this please? Thanks

...Hi Jodie and welcome!....these are not long novels, so read and draw your own conclusions instead of abiding by someone else's interpretation....best of luck on the project....
