Harper lee is the author of "To Kill a Mocking Bird".  Her new book was recently released.  

The title is: "Go Set a Watchman".

I never read "To Kill a Mocking Bird" so I may also not read this one.

I wonder where authors get the titles for their books.

As I said I've never read "To Kill a Mocking Bird", but wasn't it about a lawyer and a case?

If anyone in here reads the new book, please give us a review.

I found this online:

Publisher's Summary


An historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, best-selling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some 20 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.

I'm a little skeptical if Harper Lee even wrote that second book. Now that it has come out, I read something where her publisher or someone has miraculously found a third book as well.

WA, you really should read To Kill a Mockingbird. One of the best books I have ever read. If you're not into reading, the movie was pretty well done as well. Gregory Peck is Atticus Finch, I think. If you read the book, you will understand the title. I've read it about 4 times and I always find something new.

The title is explained in the novel.  Atticus, the lawyer played by Gregory Peck, telling his children about getting a gun when his was a boy and his father saying "You can kill all the bluejays you want, if you can hit them, but remember, it's a sin to kill a mockingbird"  Meaning that the bluejays were destructive to farm crops, but the mockingbirds did nothing but make people with their singing.

It's one of my favorite novels, I've reread it many times.
