Reading marathon for Harper Lee’s new novel today

Celebrate the new Harper Lee novel GO SET A WATCHMAN with an all-day read-a-thon marking the book’s release date Tuesday, July 14, from 10-6, Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield. A handful of readers will be scheduled every 20-30 minutes, reading a total of 2-3 pages each.

Originally written in the mid-1950s, GO SET A WATCHMAN was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

GO SET A WATCHMAN 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.

The entire community, including librarians, college professors, teachers, students, actors and book lovers of every stripe, will participate in this public read aloud event. Join us for the Grand Unveiling of THE book of the summer right here at your community bookstore.
