Reese Witherspoon gets to read Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird sequel before anyone else. She is recording the Go Set A Watchman audiobook.

'As a Southerner, it is an honour and privilege to give voice to the Southern characters who inspired my childhood love of reading, Scout and Atticus Finch,' Witherspoon said in a statement to USA Today. 'I am eager for readers to be transported to a pivotal time in American history in the manner that only Harper Lee's gorgeous prose can deliver.'

Not too long to wait. The unabridged audiobook will be released at the same time as the book on 14 July.
