Harper Lee is going to publish a new novel this summer!
According to USA Today, Lee will publish Go Set a Watchman this July. It is actually the first book she wrote more than 50 years ago. It was the story of a woman named Scout. Lee said her publisher was interested in Scout and thought a story of her childhood would be a good story.
“I was a first-time writer, so I did as I was told. I hadn’t realized the original book survived, so was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter discovered it,” said Lee.
What a discovery!
It will be an exciting summer but don’t expect to see Lee out on the publicity circuit.
The publisher said she is unlikely to do a publicity tour for this book.
To Kill a Mockingbird sold more than 40 million copies.
