"Go Set a Watchman," a novel Pulitzer Prize-winning author Harper Lee completed in the 1950s and put aside, will be released July 14, 2015. Rediscovered last fall, "Go Set a Watchman" is essentially a sequel to "To Kill a Mockingbird," although it was finished earlier. The 304-page book will be Lee's second, and the first new work in more than 50 years.
