Roots Re-Broadcast and Reissued
April 5, 2016
EarlyWord reports that Alex Haley’s Roots is being re-adapted for TV’s The History Channel this May. A new TV tie-in edition of the novel published by Da Capo (though it still may be classified as non-fiction or biography as it was originally) is coming this May as well. We have 15 copies on order under the title Roots: The Saga of An American Family. A picture of the new cover is below.
Another media tie-in to watch out for is Lost City of Z by David Grann, the basis for a movie likely to come out this fall. We have 10 copies of the book but I’m not finding an audiobook supplier, but we’ll keep our eyes open.
