Event Tonight: Go Set A Watchman
55 years ago saw the publication of Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird”, a novel I was required to read in seventh grade, and hated.
I was used to reading epic fantasy and sci-fi novels, so this slice-of-life piece of historical fiction revolving around social issues in a time I knew little about was not exciting for me to read as a young teenager. Thank Heaven that something inside me changed in High School, and I decided to reread TKAM on my own terms. I loved it.
I have now read the book several times over, and have gifted copies to friends over the years.
I am happy to announce that I have been invited to read from TKAM at Barnes and Noble TONIGHT (Orem, UT location) to celebrate the release of the long-thought-to-be-lost original manuscript from Harper Lee that has been revised for publication, 55 years later.
There is already a lot of controversy around this book, but I’m to be participating in the release of “Go Set A Watchman”, reading at Barnes and Noble tonight from 7:30-8:00pm.
See you there!
