Description

This piece was the next-day story on the announcement that "Go Set a Watchman" by Harper Lee would be released in summer 2015. It was the first piece in the country to report on the fact that there were extensive concerns among people who knew Lee that she was being manipulated into publishing the book, and that she was not mentally competent to handle her affairs. This piece was the first in the world to report on these issues in the wake of the "Go Set a Watchman" in a manner that included new, firsthand interviews, and kicked off months of coverage of these vital concerns about Lee and the circumstances of the book's publication.
