Kirsten  (kmcripn) For our next Readers’ Review: “Go Set A Watchman.” You’ve heard about the mystery surrounding its publication, you’ve read the reviews: Now we give you a chance to weigh in on this new release by Harper Lee.

Kirsten  (kmcripn) Don't forget! Today's the day!


Last month the country experienced one of the biggest literary events in recent memory: the release of Harper Lee’s “Go Set a Watchman.” Though written prior to Lee’s beloved classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” the novel follows a grown-up scout as she travels from New York to her hometown of Maycomb, Alabama. Questions linger as to whether the aging Lee approved the publication of the unearthed manuscript, yet the book set sales records even before it hit the shelves. Since then, critics have expressed mixed opinions about its merit and surprise at the portrayal of the heroic Atticus finch as racist. Now we invite you to weigh in on the novel. Join Diane and her panel for this month’s Readers’ Review of “Go Set a Watchman.”
