Publishing company Harper Collins made the incredible announcement today that Harper Lee will release her second novel ever this summer—and it's a sequel to the American classic, To Kill A Mockingbird! This is the closure that fans have been demanding ever since Boo Radley was trapped inside the Black Lodge by the malevolent spirit of Bob.

The AP has all the info on Go Set a Watchman, which the 88-year-old Lee explains in a statement she wrote in the 1950s.

"In the mid-1950s, I completed a novel called 'Go Set a Watchman. It features the character known as Scout as an adult woman, and I thought it a pretty decent effort. My editor, who was taken by the flashbacks to Scout's childhood, persuaded me to write a novel (what became 'To Kill a Mockingbird') from the point of view of the young Scout.

"I was a first-time writer, so I did as I was told. I hadn't realized it (the original book) had survived, so was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter discovered it. After much thought and hesitation, I shared it with a handful of people I trust and was pleased to hear that they considered it worthy of publication. I am humbled and amazed that this will now be published after all these years."

The 304-page book will be released on July 14th; it will have a first printing of 2 million copies, which is a remarkable amount for non-Harry Potter cannon.

Go Set A Watchman will be set back in Maycomb, Alabama during the mid-1950s, about 20 years after To Kill A Mockingbird. Here's a description of the plot:

"Scout (Jean Louise Finch) has returned to Maycomb from New York to visit her father, Atticus. She is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand her father's attitude toward society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood."

Lee has been notoriously reclusive in the decades since publishing Mockingbird; she resurfaced in public in 2013 to file a lawsuit in Manhattan court against the son-in-law of her long-time agent, Eugene Winick, for allegedly tricking her into signing over the copyright on the book. It was revealed in that suit that she has been dealing with health problems, and had been living in an assisted-living facility after suffering a stroke when she signed the document.

Harper Collins added that Lee is unlikely to do any publicity for the new book as well.

Hopefully Lee won't look at Twitter today, because I love you guys, but these jokes are almost as bad as institutional racism and the destruction of innocence.

However, this is a great Tweet:
