From Aunt Alexandra's corsets to all of the tensions of the emerging civil rights era in the South, the Maycomb Alabama presented in Go Set a Watchman is clearly a product of its 1950's origin.  Have some things, though, not changed all that much since this book was written?  Did any of the characters, plot, or themes reflect people, events, or things you see in the world today?  Did you read anything that called to mind something you saw on the news or in social media?  Did it remind you of any other books of fiction or films that have been released more recently?  Please share any ideas you may have had while reading of how Some Things Never Change right here.  :)
