Oprah Pays Tribute To Harper Lee, Her 'First Favorite Author'

"She said, 'Honey, I already said everything I had to say.'"

Oprah joined the countless literary fans mourning the loss of To Kill A Mockingbird author Harper Lee, who died on Friday at age 89. In a tweet, Oprah called Lee her "first favorite author."

Though the famously reclusive author chose not to appear on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" during its 25-year run, she once agreed to meet up with Oprah for a private lunch. In the video below, Oprah reflects on their meal together.
