[Audio] Looking Forward to the WKMS Book Club Reading 'Go Set A Watchman'
There's a lot of buzz about Harper Lee's new novel Go Set a Watchman. On Sounds Good, Jenni Todd, Asia Burnett and Kate Lochte preview the first WKMS Book Club event Wednesday, August 12 @ 5:30 pm to discuss this release.
So far, about 25 people have signed up for the Book Club event, sharing discussion and opinion on the book, getting together to see the station and get to know fellow listeners. All are invited. We'll have plenty of chairs and light refreshments.
Harper Lee's book To Kill A Mockingird, published in 1960 is considered an historical marker that's impacted American culture over the past 50 years. In this new book, does Finch come out as a good guy or bad guy in the end? How is his humanity portrayed, and the humanity of other characters? How has Scout aged over the 20 year time period between the two novels? What are the implications of this book as it reflects today's society? Just a few things to consider as you read the book and get ready to come to WKMS on August 12 at 5:30 p.m.
The book is available at local bookstores, libraries, Walmart and digital devices.
Hopkinsville and Christian County hosts a Big Read with a focus on Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman this October.
