Huge Publishing News!

February 3rd, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized

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.
