Books-A-Million has obtained a limited number of copies of "Go Set A Watchman," signed by its Pulitzer Prize winning author, Harper Lee. There are only 500 of these limited edition, signed and numbered copies being made available to the public. A limit of one per customer has been placed due the rarity of these copies, and customers can go to for details on how to purchase.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for book collectors and millions of Harper Lee's fans to own a historic piece of American literature," said Margaret Terwey, Senior Buyer for Books-A-Million. "Her Alabama roots helped create this classic American novel and Books-A-Million is honored and proud to share those roots with her. On top of being signed by Harper Lee herself, the packaging with this limited-edition is phenomenal. It is a must-have for book collectors and fans of Harper Lee."

Harper Lee's second novel is tied to her iconic classic, "To Kill A Mockingbird." It is a key piece of American literary history which follows the story of Scout Finch as she travels back to her hometown of Maycomb, Alabama 20 years after the events in "To Kill A Mockingbird."

"Go Set A Watchman" is a #1 New York Times bestseller and Harper Lee's earliest work. The signed copies are hardcover and bound in leather with debossed gold foil stamping, gold gilded edges, printed endpapers, and enclosed in a box lined in velvet with magnet closure. This package will be a highly coveted piece for collectors and Harper Lee fans alike.

The novel broke Books-A-Million's "Best First Day Sales" record for Adult Fiction when it was published earlier this year. It sold over 1 million copies in the first week and was on the New York Times Bestseller list for 6 weeks.
