New Harper Lee Novel to be Published in July!

The title, Go Set a Watchman, is actually her first novel!

It is essentially a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird although it was written prior to Mockingbird!

The story centers around a grown up Scout (the main character from Mockingbird for those who don’t know)!

Honestly, I don’t know if we have enough exclamation marks available to capture the delight this news brings.  There is also a wonderful story of found treasure associated with the release:

“I hadn’t realized it (Go Set a Watchman) had survived, so was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter discovered it. After much thought and hesitation, I shared it with a handful of people I trust and was pleased to hear that they considered it worthy of publication. I am humbled and amazed that this will now be published after all these years.” – Harper Lee from the AP report (click the link for more details).

Where do we sign up for an advance order?
