Jonathan Burnham, senior vice president and publisher of HarperCollins, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the discovery and publication of Harper Lee’s novel Go Set a Watchman. Written in the 1950s, before the classic To Kill a Mockingbird, but set 20 years later and featuring many of the same characters, the book was released in July. Joan Acocella, writer and New Yorker book critic, and Tuzyline Allan, Professor of English at Baruch College, will join Burnham to discuss this historic literary event and Lee's continuing importance in American culture and literature. Free, Reservations Required.
