Despite being one of the world’s best loved novels, Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird is a book which I have never read. It was never forced down my throat as an student and I (as yet) never picked it up as an adult. But with the release of Go Set A Watchman coming ever closer Penguin Random House are urging new and old fans to [re]visit the favourite with them.
To Kill A Mockingbird has sold over 40 million copies, been translated into over 40 languages, and UK librarians have even ranked the book ahead of the Bible as one ‘every adult should read before they die’ (Guardian). As someone who have never read it I am extremely excited to be part of this read-a-long during the last 10 days of May. Penguin Random House’s dedicated social media pages (twitter, tumblr, Instagram) are going to be sharing character family trees, plot infographics, a 10 day storyline plan, a 15 minute book club discussion guide, and more. Most excitingly they are also going to be hos
ting competitions to win copies of Go Set A Watchman to be sent out as soon as the book is published in July.
If you want to take part int his (and I hope you do) the hashtag is #TKAM.
