Harper Lee Is Publishing a New Book

Here's What You Need to Know About Harper Lee's New Book

To Kill a Mockingbird is a staple of American literature, as any astute middle school student knows. Over five decades after it was released, author Harper Lee is publishing a second book. Titled Go Set a Watchman, Lee actually wrote the book before To Kill a Mockingbird, and it features the novel's main character, Scout, as an adult. "I thought it a pretty decent effort," Lee said in a statement. "My editor, who was taken by the flashbacks to Scout's childhood, persuaded me to write a novel (now known as To Kill a Mockingbird) from the point of view of the young Scout." The new novel, which will be released on July 14, will revolve around Scout returning home from New York to visit her father. What do you think of the news? Will you read the new book?
