article image'To Kill a Mockingbird' hits digital age after long wait

By Larry Seely     Apr 28, 2014 in Entertainment
After a long wait, author Harper Lee has finally signed a deal to allow her novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird' to go digital. The long awaited debut will hit e-books and digital audio books on July 8.
The 88-year-old Lee has finally changed her mind about the release, but still believes books and libraries should be cherished. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author wrote an article back in 2006 about the digital age and stated she preferred turning pages rather then reading on a cold metal box.
The Associated Press has reported the deal with Scout, Boo Radley and Atticus Finch that will allow readers of every age to enjoy the novel based on a lawyer that defends a black man in the South of a racially divided town.
Last year Harper sued her former literary agent, Samuel Pinkus to regain the publishing rights to her novel, which she claimed were signed over after Pinkus tricked her into signing over the copyright license because of poor health.
