With the recent publication of “Go Set a Watchman,” Harper Lee’s first novel since the Pulitzer Prize-winning “To Kill a Mockingbird” 55 years earlier, the Westport Library will host two programs on the writer’s work.
A free screening of the movie version of “To Kill A Mockingbird,” starring Gregory Peck, will take place at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 8 in the library’s McManus Room. Peck won an Academy Award for best actor for his portrayal.
A discussion of “Go Set a Watchman” is planned at 3 p.m. Aug. 29. The free program will be led by Sara Camarro, a language-arts teacher at Coleytown Middle School, who has taught “To Kill a Mockingbird” to students many years and has read the novel more than 40 times, according to the library.
