Sequel for 'To Kill a Mockingbird' will be released this summer
MONROEVILLE, AL - Residents and visitors to the Alabama town that Harper Lee made famous with her classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" are both pleased and perplexed by the news that a sequel to the book will be released this summer.
Jillian Schultz has a business in Monroeville, Lee's hometown and the model for the novel's fictional "Maycomb."
Schultz said she was surprised to hear that another book was coming out so many years after the first one, which was published 54 years ago.
The "Mockingbird" sequel was announced Tuesday. A news release from the publisher says Lee's lawyer Tonja Carter discovered the manuscript attached to an original typescript of "To Kill a Mockingbird." Lee wrote it before she penned the famous novel.
