WHO: Marja Mills
WHAT: THE MOCKINGBIRD NEXT DOOR Book Signing
WHEN: Thursday, June 18th, 7 p.m.
WHERE: Jimmy Carter Presidential Library

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Join us for a reading, discussion, and book signing with Marja Mills, the first journalist in years to be granted access to Harper Lee.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
Harper Lee didn't open her door to the public for the fifty years after she wrote her instant classic, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. And then, one day in 2001--she did. THE MOCKINGBIRD NEXT DOOR: LIFE WITH HARPER LEE is the true story of Chicago Tribune journalist Marja Mills and the unlikely friendship she built with one of America's most beloved--and most private--authors. The book generated more than a little controversy when it came out in hardcover last year, sparking debate over Lee's consent to her own sudden exposure. The book is now out in paperback, just in time for the release of Lee's surprise sequel to TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, GO SET A WATCHMAN

"THE MOCKINGBIRD NEXT DOOR is...wholly unlike anything I've ever read, a reflection of both the author and her sympathetic subject. We should all be glad that Marja Mills went down to that Best Western in Monroeville in search of Harper Lee.'
--David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize – winning author of BARACK OBAMA and FIRST IN HIS CLASS

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Marja Mills is a former reporter and feature writer for the Chicago Tribune, where she was a member of the staff that won a Pulitzer Prize for a 2001 series about O'Hare Airport entitled "Gateway to Gridlock." THE MOCKINGBIRD NEXT DOOR is her first book.
