Book Club Monday

On July 14th a much anticipated book will be released, Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee.  This is the second book for the To Kill A Mockingbird author.  Supposedly this title was written first but was lost many years ago.  Harper Lee was adamant that she never wanted to publish another book after To Kill a Mockingbird, which has sold over 30 million copies since its release in 1960.  The story of this publication goes, that her sister, Alice, who recently died was in charge of all of Harper’s affairs.    Mysteriously now, while, Harper Lee is in an assisted living home, her sister, her gatekeeper, no longer around, her manuscript was found and she wants to publish it after all these years.  Fishy, right?  Well the state of Alabama thought so too, and investigated.  They concluded that indeed Harper Lee did want Go Set A Watchman published after all and there was no foul play!!   Watchman takes place when Scout, the narrator of To Kill and Mockingbird is all grown up.  The story this time is told in the third person and she is “forced to grabble with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand her father’s attitude towards society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood”.  Go Set a Watchman is surely going to be the most discussed topic among book lovers everywhere.  Now YOU have the inside scoop!!!!  To purchase your copy click HERE.
