If you love the book "To Kill A Mockingbird", you might be pleased to know that on July 14, 2015, the new book, "Go Set A Watchman" will be released by Harper Lee! It will be called a new book but it isn't really. Apparently, this will be the original book that Harper Lee wrote! In 1960, the editor wanted to only publish the portions of her book that dealt with the experiences of Scout as a young child in Alabama. Her original book has Scout as an adult in New York City, twenty years after the events depicted in "To Kill A Mockingbird". (Harper Lee said as this was her first book she did as she was told.) She really thought that the full manuscript was lost, but her lawyer found a copy and Harper Lee decided to publish it. (Did she want to or was she gently persuaded? I don't know, but I am glad that she will do so!)
Go Set A Watchman...it sounds like that could be something from the Bible, doesn't it?
It has to be, I found this in the Book of Isaiah, Isaiah 21:6 to be precise...
For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.
The FIRST printing will be two million copies! YAY!
Happy to share this piece of good news with you!
|Mockingbirds will often go to the highest places and sing. (They will often sing at night during the summer.) This one was at the highest point on top of St. Simon's Church. He was singing his heart out!|
