Our book reviewer Scott Southard dives into the much anticipated "Go Set A Watchman" by Harper Lee.

After Harper Lee published her iconic novel To Kill a Mockingbird, one of America’s most beloved authors became one of its most reclusive. She never published again. But last year, Lee’s attorney found a manuscript of Lee’s first novel, Go Set a Watchman, which takes place 30 years after Mockingbird. Our book reviewer Scott Southard gives us his take on Lee’s first novel in over 50 years.
