New Books from Legendary Authors

New Books from Legendary Authors

Harper Lee, the author who wrote the American classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, announced that she will be coming out with a new book on July 14, 2015. The book is titled Go Set a Watchman. If you don’t already know, Harper Lee is a genius author who had a terrible case of writer’s block. Lee’s classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, sells about 750,000-800,000 copies a year and is the most sold classic in America.

 

Lee wrote Go Set a Watchman in the mid-50’s. She submitted the manuscript of this book before To Kill a Mockingbird. Until late 2014, it had been lost. Harper Lee’s lawyer had found the manuscript, while going through some legal documents. The book will have 304 pages. It is being published by HarperCollins.

Summary (from Barnesandnoble.com):

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

 

Another legendary author, who is sadly no longer alive, Dr. Seuss, also has a book set to release July 28, 2015. The new book is titled: What Pet Should I Get?

 

 

Summary (Barnesandnoble.com):

 

This never-ever-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure! What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one! The tale captures a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!

 

Told in Dr. Seuss’s signature rhyming style, this is a must-have for Seuss fans and book collectors, and a perfect choice for the holidays, birthdays, and happy occasions of all kinds.

An Editor’s Note at the end discusses Dr. Seuss’s creative process, his interest in animals, and Seussian creatures throughout his work.
