On July 4th, Independence Day in the United States, Danielle and I will be on BBC Radio Norfolk, the Chrissie Jackson Book Club program, to discuss Harper Lee’s novel, Go Set A Watchman.
The book is Lee’s second published novel, and is set approximately twenty years after the events of her legendary classic To Kill A Mockingbird. Scout Finch has grown up, and after moving away returns home to find that everything is not as she remembers.
The book created quite a bit of controversy, both for the change in personality that appears to paint Atticus Finch as something other than the hero from Mockingbird, and for the details of its actual publication and whether or not Harper Lee was in the right state of mind to truly consent to it being released.
So join Danielle and I on the radio for a bit of discussion!
