Actress Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde, Water For Elephants) will set her hand to narration for the first time for the audiobook edition of Harper Lee’s hotly anticipated second novel, Go Set a Watchman.
In a statement, Witherspoon said she is looking forward to the challenge. “As a Southerner, it is an honor and privilege to give voice to the Southern characters who inspired my childhood love of reading, Scout and Atticus Finch.”
Witherspoon was born in New Orleans and partly raised in Nashville. Her roles have included Southern characters, including roles in Sweet Home Alabama and an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line.
