Harper Lee will release To Kill a Mockingbird in digital format on July 8, the 54th anniversary of the book’s publication.
Lee turned 88 on Monday. “I’m still old-fashioned. I love dusty old books and libraries,” Lee said in a statement issued by her publisher, HarperCollins. “I am amazed and humbled that Mockingbird has survived this long. This is Mockingbird for a new generation.”
To Kill a Mockingbird and Catcher in the Rye were among the classics not available in digital form.
