Well here's something I never thought we would do.
We're having a midnight release party for Harper Lee's new book! This up and coming author had limited success with her first book, To Kill A Mockingbird. Maybe her sophomore effort will do better.
To attend you need to preorder a copy of Go Set A Watchman from Little Shop of Stories by June 15th.
This promises to be a fun and memorable family event.
