Two and a half months after the death of Harper Lee's sister and longtime lawyer/executor, it was announced that Go Set A Watchman would be released in the summer of 2015. Over half a century after having been written, Go Set A Watchman was found in a Lee Family safety deposit box with a To Kill A Mockingbird book jacket hiding Go Set A Watchman.
Go Set A Watchman readers should keep in mind that Go Set A Watchman has been published with very little editing. It was a "draft", but was never truly "finalized" by the author or even an editor. The author was asked to utilize Go Set A Watchman to write the To Kill A Mockingbird that we know today. So, this new novel is not actually a sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird.
