Mindy Novotny to read from MOCKINGBIRD at B&N on Monday

No matter how much you liked it, it's better than you remember.

No matter how much you liked it, it’s better than you remember.

Mindy Novotny, midday host at 102.9 The Hog in Milwaukee, has volunteered to read during the TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD Read-a-Thon at Barnes & Noble in Racine this Monday. Novotny will be reading from 7:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in anticipation of the Harper Lee-penned sequel, GO SET A WATCHMAN, coming out the next day. And you’ve never heard TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD until you’ve heard Mindy read it.

The Read-a-Thon runs from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., during which time volunteers will be reading passages from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, and will feature readers such as Jordan Debbink (HEROES OF FAITH), Gavin Schmitt (THE MILWAUKEE MAFIA), Elizabeth Ridley (SEARCHING FOR CELIA), and I’ll be taking a turn reading from 7:00 to 7:30, right before Mindy.

The event is totally free, and if you don’t live near Racine, Barnes & Noble is doing the Read-a-Thon nationwide, so you’ll be able to enjoy hearing passages from one of the most important books of the 20th century no matter where you are. If you haven’t read TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD since high school, this is a great way to reacquaint yourself with Scout, Atticus, Tom and Boo.

Bob Ewell? Well, he’s part of the package. Gotta take the good with the bad.

Christian A. Larsen is the author of LOSING TOUCH, featuring a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Piers Anthony, now available in paperback and ebook formats from Post Mortem Press.
