'To Kill A Mockingbird' Goes Digital
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
And today's Last Word In Business is digital mockingbird.
Yesterday, on her 88th birthday, author Harper Lee announced that her classic novel "To Kill A Mockingbird" will finally be made available as an e-book and a digital audio book. It was first printed on old-fashioned paper in 1960, and still sells over a million copies per year.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
In a statement, the reclusive author proclaimed: I'm still old-fashioned. I love dusty old books and libraries. But she added: This is "Mockingbird" for a new generation.
And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
INSKEEP: And I'm Steve Inskeep.
