Atticus Finch: The Biography

  • Sunday, August 5, 2018, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
  • D.G. Wills Books, 7461 Girard Avenue, San Diego
  • Free

The publication of Go Set a Watchman in 2015 forever changed how we think about Atticus Finch. Once seen as a paragon of decency, he was reduced to a small-town racist. How are we to understand this transformation? Author of Atticus Finch, historian Joseph Crespino, will speak at D.G. Wills, using exclusive sources to reveal how Harper Lee’s father provided the central inspiration for each of her books. A lawyer and newspaperman, A. C. Lee was a principled opponent of mob rule, yet he was also a racial paternalist. Harper Lee created the Atticus of Watchman out of the ambivalence she felt toward white southerners like him. But when a militant segregationist movement arose that mocked his values, she revised the character in To Kill a Mockingbird to defend her father and to remind the South of its best traditions.
