Harper Lee to Publish Second Book

Over a half-century after her debut novel, Harper Lee is publishing her second this summer.

Her publisher announced Tuesday that Lee will release her second work, titled “Go Set a Watchman,” on July 14.

The book is nothing new; Lee, 88, completed “Watchman” alongside her first novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” in the 1950s

“Watchman” follows the protagonist of “Mockingbird,” Scout Finch. Unlike the first book, Finch will be portrayed as an adult woman set in the 1950s.

The manuscript of “Watchman” was rediscovered last year, Lee said in a statement from her publisher. The statement continued after “much thought and hesitation,” Lee decided it was “worthy of publication.”
