But when he announces they’re moving to Athens for six months so he can work on an important new story, she’s devastated— he must have an ulterior motive.

Author Harper Lee to Publish 'To Kill a Mockingbird' Sequel!

Author Harper Lee to Publish 'To Kill a Mockingbird' Sequel!

Acclaimed author Harper Lee is set to publish her second novel this summer!

The 88-year-old writer’s 304-age book “Go Set a Watchman,” which was written in the 1950s and put aside, will be released on July 14. It is described as a sequel to her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

“In the mid-1950s, I completed a novel called ‘Go Set a Watchman,’” Harper said in a statement. “It features the character known as Scout as an adult woman, and I thought it a pretty decent effort. My editor, who was taken by the flashbacks to Scout’s childhood, persuaded me to write a novel (what became ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’) from the point of view of the young Scout.”

She continued, “I was a first-time writer, so I did as I was told. I hadn’t realized it (the original book) had survived, so was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter discovered it. After much thought and hesitation, I shared it with a handful of people I trust and was pleased to hear that they considered it worthy of publication. I am humbled and amazed that this will now be published after all these years.”

We've Got An Exclusive First Read Of 'Everybody Knows Your Name' By Andrea Seigel & Brent Bradshaw!

We've Got An Exclusive First Read Of 'Everybody Knows Your Name' By Andrea Seigel & Brent Bradshaw!

The JJJ Book Club is loving all these first reads we’re getting and we have to share the latest with you all — “Everybody Knows Your Name” by Andrea Seigel and Brent Bradshaw!

In the new book from the Laggies writers, Magnolia comes from a McMansion where her leopard print-clad mother’s primary goal is snagging a spot on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Ford comes from a trailer park in middle-of-nowhere Arkansas, where his family is best known for their record number of DUIs. The two teens have nothing in common, except a dream of escaping their backgrounds and making names for themselves. That’s where Spotlight comes in, a reality TV show singing competition that’s like a cross between The Real World and American Idol.

Now Magnolia and Ford, along with a dozen other aspiring stars, are living together in a Hollywood mansion and singing their hearts out to the American public. As the weeks go by and the number of housemates dwindles, Magnolia and Ford begin to fall in love. But how genuine can that love be when camera are watching their every move, and when their pasts are catching up to them so much faster than they can run?

“Everybody Knows Your Name” is on shelves March 10th!
