There’s lots of hoo-ha this month with the release of Harper Lee’s second book, Go Set A Watchman, the original manuscript she turned in to a publisher decades ago that was rewritten and released in 1960 as the iconic To Kill A Mockingbird.
You may have read To Kill A Mockingbird in high school; it might be time to give it another read. Revisiting an old favorite will offer a more mature analysis. The Lennoxville Library has a copy; ask at the desk! There’s also a version in Audio Books. (As for the new book, please remember it takes libraries a bit of time to order and process an acquisition….)
Via interlibrary loan, you can get Mockingbird in French, and you can also order 2014’s The Mockingbird Next Door: Life With Harper Lee, by Marja Mills, a memoir.
