Most of us are familiar with the award-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird. Until recently, this was the only novel written by author Harper Lee. The unexpected discovery of another book, written decades ago, led to the highly anticipated publication of Go Set a Watchman. This has been called a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird because it focuses on the character Scout as an adult. In reality, it is a first draft of To Kill a Mockingbird. When it was first presented to the publishers, Lee was told to rewrite the story using Scout’s flashbacks of her childhood. She did so, and a classic was born.
Now the original story has been published and it has created quite a stir. The first printing is 2 million copies and it has set sales records.
This week the library received our copy on audio CD. Our print copy has not arrived yet, but will hopefully be on the shelves soon. We also have this title available in electronic format, both as an eBook and eAudio.
If you have questions about using our electronic library, or you wish to request the print book or audio, just check with any of our helpful library staff.
