Signed Special Edition of Go Set a Watchman Hits Shelves

For recently released books that have generated immense buzz, debate, and controversy, Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman is second to none.  Lee’s LONG (we’re talking over 50 years) awaited follow up to her beloved classic To Kill a Mockingbird sold over two millions copies in its first two months on bookstore shelves.  Now, Lee’s publisher HarperCollins is releasing a limited edition leather bound version of the novel signed by the author!

Before you get bummed out that you already own a copy of Go Set a Watchman, you should know that HarperCollins is releasing only five hundred copies of the autographed edition and that each copy is going for a whopping $1500.  However, nabbing a copy might prove a sound investment.  Signed first editions of To Kill a Mockingbird sell for up to $20,000. 

According to the publisher, Lee, 89, signed sheets of paper that were later bound into the special editions.  Though her literary legacy will likely be best exemplified by To Kill a Mockingbird, there’s no denying that Go Set a Watchman will be, and is already, a vital part of that legacy and, perhaps, literary history.
