Harper Lee to Publish To Kill A Mockingbird Sequel

February 3, 2015


Harper Lee's "new" book will tell us what happens to Scout and Atticus Finch and the other beloved characters many years after the original book. It is called Go Set A Watchmen. It focuses on Scout as an adult and her relationship with her father.

Well, actually it's an old book. I'm not exactly sure that you can call it a sequel, either.



After all, Lee apparently wrote this book before To Kill A Mockingbird. Her editor became interested in the backstory of the characters, which were told in flashbacks, and encouraged Lee to write a book on Scout as a child. That story became To Kill A Mockingbird and has since sold about 40 million copies and become an American classic.

The original manuscript for Go Set A Watchmen was considered lost, but was discovered by Lee's lawyer. It was attached to an original manuscript of To Kill A Mockingbird.

It will published in July 2015 with a first printing of 2 million copies, as Harper Lee wrote it, with no revisions.

  1. I am a little terrified of this to be honest. I feel like some books just need to end, and To Kill ended just right. I am still hopeful though.
