As the days pass more information and insight is unveiled onto Harper Lee’s vastly anticipated followup to Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. She continues her literary legacy by releasing the Go Set a Watchman, a book which was her original submission to her publishers before “To Kill..”, became the runaway success it is to this day. Thought to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered late last year, and features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later.
Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.
Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Check out the high res cover below, and preorder for the July 14th release here.
