Harper Lee published her second novel Go Set a Watchman this summer, a follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize-winning To Kill a Mockingbird. To celebrate this beloved Southern author, we are hosting an exciting event this coming Monday, August 3, at the Main Library at Goodwood: we will read To Kill a Mockingbird aloud from start to finish! The all-day readathon will feature librarians and special guests from the community. This is a great opportunity for students to experience this iconic American classic in a unique way right before school starts or for adults to discover or revisit this important read. Join us anytime on this Monday the 3rd starting at 8:30 a.m. and follow #MockingbirdMonday and #ebrpl on social media.
Mark your calendars for a book discussion of the much-anticipated Go Set a Watchman on Tuesday, September 15, at 7 p.m., also at Main. We have lots of copies of the book in a variety of formats at the library and we can’t wait to hear what you think of it at the book discussion!
