Join us to talk about Harper Lee & Southern literature with James Andrew Crank (Ph.D.), Assistant Prof. of American Literature, University of Alabama, on Thursday, July 2nd from 4-5 pm in the Halle Room.
In February of 2015, the literary world was galvanized by the announcement that Harper Lee would release a new novel, Go Set a Watchman, in July. That instant euphoria, however, diminished quickly when a series of articles questioned Lee’s consent in the matter of the novel’s publication. Examining the announcement of the “new novel” more closely, it became clear to scholars and popular readers alike that what is coming is neither “new” nor a “sequel” to Lee’s mega-successful American novel To Kill a Mockingbird (1960).
