Did you hear? Harper Lee, the famous author of To Kill a Mockingbird published a new book, and it came out Tuesday! A family friend first told me about the release, and then I found this article in the New York Times.

Interestingly, the “new’ book which is titled Go Set a Watchman was actually written before To Kill a Mockinbird but is a type of sequal that is set 20 years after To Kill a Mockingbird. Somehow, the manuscript for Go set a Watchman was lost but then rediscovered in 2014.

So, why is the release of this book so epic? Well, Harper Lee never published another book after To Kill a Mockingbird – until now. That is pretty amazing.

I read To Kill a Mockingbird in school years ago but since it has been so long, I have borrowed the novel from the library and when it is done, I am so getting my hands on Go Set a Watchman!

How about you? Do you remember reading To Kill a Mockingbird? Do you plan on reading Go Set a Watchman?
