Go Set a Watchman
Meet the author, Harper Lee
Nelle Harper Lee, born in Alabama in 1926, is a descendant of the Civil War General Robert E. Lee. She is best known for her award winning, critically acclaimed novel To Kill a Mockingbird, released in July of 1960. The novel was an immediate bestseller and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize the following year. Her novel continues to be seen as timelessly influential and as a must read with over 30 million copies presently in print. With the release of Go Set a Watchman, a much earlier draft of To Kill a Mockingbird, in July of 2015, Lee is again climbing the Bestsellers lists across the country. She continues to bridge the time gap between racial relations – showing great similarities in ideas of old with current events and today’s headlines.
