Midnight Watchman: An Evening Celebration and First Chance to Buy Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman
If there's one book we're all waiting for this year, it's Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman.
To celebrate the publication of this much anticipated follow-up to Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, we're opening our doors to a limited number of readers for an evening of revelry, culminating in the first chance to buy Go Set a Watchman as the bells strike midnight.
Spread across the Ground Level of our stately Charing Cross Road bookshop, we invite you to join us for this late-night celebration of all things Watchman with this chance to meet fellow fans, to remember what we love about Mockingbird and to get your hands on Go Set a Watchman before anyone else.
Set after the events of To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee's only other published work, Watchman was written in the 1950s and originally submitted to publishers before the author's Pulitzer-winning classic. Considered lost for decades, Go Set a Watchman is released on 14th July in what is, without doubt, the publishing event of the year.
Attendees who reserve a place in advance will be entered in a prize draw to win a £100 Foyles Gift Card and a free copy of Go Set a Watchman. Just book your place before 12 noon on Monday 13th July, and arrive no later than 11:30pm on the evening of the event.
Please note: Due to late-night licensing restrictions we will be unable to serve alcohol at this event.
