Reese Witherspoon Reads Harper Lee's 'Go Set a Watchman' in New Podcast!

Harper Lee‘s highly anticipated book “Go Set a Watchman” will not be hitting stores until Monday, but the first chapter was just released!

In a new podcast that debuted on The Guardian, Reese Witherspoon narrates a 23 minute clip featuring the book’s first chapter. This is the first literary work that the author has published since 1960.

“I had to keep reminding myself it was written in the ’50s, and these were the complex issues that people of the day were dealing with,” Reese said. “And old attitudes and modern thinking was just evolving about race relations in our country. So I think you will feel all that complexity in the piece.”
