It’s been fifty-five years since To Kill a Mockingbird was published, earning this first time author a Pulitzer Prize.  Now, at eighty-eight a second book will be published in July of this year.  Go Set a Watchman is a book written before To Kill a Mockingbird, but taking place twenty years later when Scout is grown and goes home to visit her father.

Once home in Maycomb, Scout grapples with personal and political issues as she attempts to understand her father’s attitude toward society.  She also struggles with her own feelings about her childhood and where she was born.  The book will feature many characters from the first book.

I think this is pretty amazing.  This author now lives in a nursing home and thought this manuscript was lost or destroyed years ago.
