Pageturners October Read – Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee

Number One
October Read

Our Pageturners October discussion will be held on Thursday 15th October at 5.30pm instead of Wednesday when illustrator Graeme Base will be a special guest at the Library.

The book for discussion is the much anticipated Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee.

From the Publisher:

Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch – ‘Scout’ – returns home from New York City to visit her ageing father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill A Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past – a journey that can be guided only by one’s own conscience.
