The author who gave us Boo Radley and the beloved Atticus Finch will have a midnight release party at Lemaire restaurant at The Jefferson Hotel July 13 for her new novel, Go Set A Watchman.

Chop Suey Books and Lemaire have teamed up to put on the party, which will be held from 10 pm to 12:30 am. Now Lee herself won’t be there, but you can snag yourself a copy of the book which will be sold after midnight.

Go Set a Watchman was originally written in the mid-1950s according to the website. The book brings back a few of our favorites from To Kill A Mockingbird including Scout, who is “returning home to Maycomb to visit he father. She’s struggling with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.”
