BIG Bastille Day tomorrow. Two Grottoites, Janis Cooke Newman​ and Joshua Mohr​, have novels coming out. Harper Lee's controversial sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird will be released, and New Horizons will make its closest approach to Pluto. Who's going to read Go Set a Watchman? I am, out of curiosity.
