With all the recent fuss over the publication of “Go Set a Watchman” and the legal feuding in Monroeville, one can understand why this book was produced. There is interest in the subject.

Neri, the author of six previous books for children and teens, says of his work,I'm like a mash-up DJ of a writer: I sample real life and re-mix it into story.”

"To Kill a Mockingbird" author Harper Lee is at odds with a museum in her hometown of Monroeville.

Lee is seeking a trademark for the words "To Kill a Mockingbird" when they are used on clothing. The Monroe County Heritage Museum is opposing the application, contending the sale of souvenirs with the words "To Kill a Mockingbird" is vital to its continued operation.

Lee's attorney, Robert Clarida, says the 87-year-old author has never received a penny from the museum's sale of T-shirts, caps and other souvenirs.

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley takes his Road to Economic Recovery Tour back on the road with a visit to Monroeville in Monroe County.

   A release from the governor's office says Bentley will begin the tour at about 11 a.m. Tuesday with a visit to the Monroeville town square on the West Claiborne Street side.
