NEW YORK (AP) — Scout, Boo Radley and Atticus Finch are finally reaching the pixeled screen.

"To Kill a Mockingbird" will be made available as an e-book and digital audiobook in July, filling one of the biggest gaps in the electronic library. Author Harper Lee said in a rare public statement issued Monday through HarperCollins Publishers that while she still favored "dusty" books, she had signed on for making "Mockingbird" available to a "new generation."

Lee, who turned 88 on Monday, published her novel in 1960. Harper Collins says it has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and still sells more than 1 million a year.
