Harper Lee is publishing another book titled Go Set a Watchmen, which is amazing news to say the least. The fact that it is a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird is even more so. Being an aspiring author from Alabama, she is without a doubt one of my heroes.
So maybe Lee's sequel will likewise only add to the storyline. The book will no doubt be a success no matter what simply because it was written by one of the most talented and mysterious authors in American history. To Kill a Mockingbird was required reading when I was in high school, and like millions of other people, I wanted more from her.
