Pluto, Harper Lee & Poldark

Are you on board with the lost book of Harper Lee?

Are you on board with the lost book of Harper Lee?

Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan tackle the world one cup fo coffee at a time. On today’s show, the publication of Harper Lee’s “lost” novel Go Set A Watchman, the publishing event of the last decade. We’re happy that readers are pouring into book stores, but is this book really what we wanted to read about literary hero, Atticus Finch. We vote on whether we’ll buy and read Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman, based on reviews, the new version fo Atticus and the suspicious discovery of the manuscript in the first place. Weigh in and tell is if you’re going to pick up Go Set A Watchman. Let us know your review.

Plus:
Satellite Sisters Book Tour Update. We’d love to come to your town, but it’s just not possible for us to travel extensively due to budgets and work. But maybe you work with an organization that brings in speakers. Or have some pull at your local book festival. Working on a conference and needs speakers. We’d love to talk to you. For more information on working with us, please see the speakers pages on this website.

Go Set A Watchman Reviews are in. Copies are in the bookstore. The biggest publishing happening since Harry Potter! But is it a good thing that the book surfaced 60 years after it wasn’t published int he first place? We discuss.

Book Recommendations from Lian. Two books on the oppostite end of the women’s fiction genre. Lian gives the thumbs to The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan and  Dietland by Sarai Walker, a subversive feminist read with a cupcake on the cover and terrorists inside. Good book club pick if you want a juicy discussion book.
