The Evening Post: Go Set A Watchman’s Alternative Take On Atticus Finch


Geek Alabama Evening Post

The book world is going crazy over the new Harper Lee book “Go Set a Watchman.”  The book comes out on Tuesday and I wanted to feature this video from the PBS Newshour where they talk about the alternate take of the main character Atticus Finch.  The new book has Finch as being a racist, and this has already started a huge debate!

Jeffrey Brown talks to former U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey and Wayne Flynt of Auburn University about how the work resonates in American culture and how it reflects Lee’s intentions.
