Scout and Atticus Finch are back!

To Kill A Mockingbird, one of the most celebrated pieces of American literature, finally has its sequel in the form of Go Set A Watchman; a novel meant to further explore the Southern family we came to know and love so well.

Until now, the author had never published anything following the success of Mockingbird.

Harper Lee’s manuscript for Watchman, having been unearthed by her lawyer in 2014, was reportedly hidden amongst Lee’s possessions ever since Mockingbird’s publication in 1960. The sequel released this Tuesday was written as the original first draft to Mockingbird with the future intention of a trilogy.Mitch Albom with Mrs Hollis - S.A.Y. Detroit photo
