Literary News! Harper Lee To Publish A Sequel For To Kill A Mockingbird

Harper Lee, now 88 years old, has only ever published one book. Her now canonical novel, To Kill A Mockingbird has sold over 40 million copies since it’s publication in 1960 and is still popular today. This moving tale about racial inequality in the American South is taught in schools across the United States.

Maybe she wanted to leave the literary world on a high note? We’ve only had the one novel to read and interpret, to love and cherish… Until now!

The New York Times announced today that they’ve gotten word from Lee’s publisher that she will be publishing another novel this summer. It is currently titled Go Set A Watchman.

At one point she considered calling the novel, Atticus, after one of the novel’s main characters. The title was changed after more focus was given to Scout Finch.
