If you are at all acquainted with¬†the book scene, you already know that a new book by Harper Lee is set for release this summer. ‘New’ may not be the most accurate word, since she reportedly wrote it¬†before she wrote¬†To Kill a Mockingbird, but it is just now being released. However, the joy that first came with the announcement has been tempered by some doubts about this sequel. Yes, it is a sequel, featuring an adult Scout. And, below are links to a few articles that might help to chronicle the evolution of reactions to the news about Harper Lee’s new novel:

NYTimes.com:¬†Harper Lee, Author of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ is to Publish a Second Novel¬†from Feb. 3, 2015

BBC.com:¬†Harper Lee: ‘Trade Frenzy’ and ‘concern’ over new book¬†from Feb. 4, 2015

NPR.org:¬†Harper Lee’s Friend Says Author Is Hard Of Hearing, Sound Of Mind¬†from Feb. 4, 2015

BBC.com:¬†Harper Lee dismisses concerns she was ‘pressured’ into book release¬†from Feb. 5, 2015

And so, with baited breath, we wait for Summer 2015 when this book will be available for us to decide whether it’s a good thing or not. I do¬†think that HarperCollins¬†would hesitate¬†to publish it if it weren’t very good, though..
