Go Set a Watchman Set for Release July 14- Certified Copies available
Monroeville, AL- June 14, 2015 Ask any avid reader his or her favorite books and you’re very likely to hear a list that includes To Kill a Mockingbird. For those who love the novel by Harper Lee, there an event that will soon unfold that is certain to be exciting. On July 14, 2015, Go Set a Watchman—the only other book known to have ever been written by Lee—will finally be released to the public.
Written in the 1950’s, Watchman details the adult life of Mockingbird narrator, Scout Finch. The new novel follows Scout home to Maycomb, AL, where she deals with politics and personal feelings and tries to reconcile her adult life with the lessons learned from her father, Atticus, as a child in Maycomb.
The Go Set a Watchman title comes from the biblical Isaiah 21:6, “For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.” Lee chose it as a tribute to her father, Amasa Coleman Lee, on whom the character of Atticus Finch was modeled.
While Go Set a Watchman has been called To Kill a Mockingbird’s sequel, it was actually written first. Until very recently, the work was assumed destroyed and gone, but was then found by Harper Lee’s attorney and approved by Lee to be published.
Go Set a Watchman is available via pre-order from Ol’ Curiosities and Book Shoppe, a retail book dealer located in Lee’s hometown of Monroeville, Alabama. A limited number of Watchman orders will include an embossed title pages and Certificates of Authenticity free of charge.
