The much-anticipated release of "Go Set a Watchman," Harper Lee's sequel to "To Kill a Mockingbird," is Tuesday, and Seymour Library is celebrating all day long. The movie version of "To Kill a Mockingbird," starring Academy Award winner Gregory Peck, will be shown at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. We'll have lemonade, tea cakes and trivia questions throughout the day. As for the book itself? We expect to have seven copies of "Go Set a Watchman,"on Tuesday morning, and we encourage you to place a hold on it. Even if it looks as if many people are placing holds, the wait may not be as long as you think - the number of holds is the number of people throughout our five-county system waiting for the book, and libraries throughout the system will be filling requests for their patrons. We'll notify you by the usual method - a phone call or e-mail - as soon as the book is available for you.
