I try not to use the word “fan” when I like an artist’s work because chances are I’d find many of their other works unlikeable. With Harper Lee now, it’s different. I can wholeheartedly say I am a Fan of Harper Lee’s work mostly because she’s only published one Novel or rather one highly acclaimed novel which is still selling even after over fifty years of its original publication. I am talking about, “To kill a mockingbird”, the highly acclaimed southern gothic novel which has little to do with birds and everything to do with morals and conduct.
Although Harper Lee has been out of sight for the majority of her years post publishing, I happened to stumble upon a quote of hers which is in the image above. Being a picky reader myself, I couldn’t agree more with Ms Lee, the book to read is the one that makes you think.
I would love to share a news that brought me Joy upon hearing it. At the age of eighty-eight, Harper Lee is set to publish her second novel this coming July and what’s more, it is a sequel to her first Novel, mockingbird. This new novel is called Go set a watchman and it follows the main character of her first novel, Scout, twenty years later.
I am excited and cannot wait to read this new book, how about you?
