Mary McDonagh Murphy will take center stage tomorrow at a book party to celebrate the paperback release of her book “Scout, Atticus & Boo: A Celebration of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird.'”.
Published by HarperCollins in hardcover in 2010, the New York Times bestselling book commemorates the 50th anniversary of “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Nelle Harper Lee.
Murphy, an Ossining resident who is a writer and filmmaker, looked at why the story has been so popular and tells the backstory with “rare cooperation from Harper Lee’s family and friends, and (includes) never-before-seen documents and photos,” according to her website.
Here’s a book description from the publisher:
Murphy has interviewed prominent figures—including Oprah, Anna Quindlen, and Tom Brokaw—on how the book has impacted their lives.
The party will be at The Village Bookstore, 10 Washington Ave., in Pleasantville from 6:30 to 8 p.m. tomorrow. Books will be available for sale and Murphy will be on hand to autograph copies.
