Reese To Read New Harper Lee

Not much is known about Harper Lee’s second novel, “Go Set a Watchman,” the project that will mark Lee’s return to fiction after 55 years. (Pub date is July 14th.) But the book already has one reader: Reese Witherspoon, who will record the audio version of Lee’s follow-up to “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Witherspoon told USA Today that, “as a Southerner, it is an honor and a privilege to give voice to the Southern characters who inspired my childhood love of reading, Scout and Atticus Finch.” The Oscar-winning star added that she is “eager for readers to be transported to a pivotal time in American history in the manner that only Lee’s gorgeous prose can deliver.”
