9780062409850_p0_v9_s114x166Harper-Collins recently announced that the audiobook of Harper Lee’s second novel will be released on July 14 of this year.  The novel, which she wrote before “To Kill a Mockingbird,” takes place twenty years after “Mockingbird.”  The publisher has stated that the novel shares the same characters and setting as “Mockingbird,” but it is a distinct story.

The audiobook will be narrated by Reese Witherspoon.  “As a Southerner, it is an honor and privilege to give voice to the Southern characters who inspired my childhood love of reading, Scout and Atticus Finch.”

Harper-Collins is planning a first printing of two million copies.  The audiobook will probably be equally in demand.
