February 3, 2015. Big author news! Harper Lee will publish a second novel this July!
Go Set a Watchman
, which Lee completed in the 1950s and then set aside in favor of To Kill a Mockingbird, will be published July 14, 2015. It is set in the 1950s and is about Scout returning to her hometown of Maycomb, Alabama to see her father, the upright lawyer Atticus Finch.
An article in The Seattle Times here. And "google" away -- all kinds of info, and controversy -- "does she really want it published?" "Is she of sound mind...?"
We are taking names for pre-orders -- give us a call [425-775-2789] or send us an email, and we will make sure we have one for you as soon as they arrive!

Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Pamela Smith Hill.
Follow the real Laura Ingalls and her family as they make their way west and discover that truth is as remarkable as fiction.
Hidden away since the 1930s, Laura Ingalls Wilder's never-before-published autobiography reveals the true stories of her pioneering life. Some of her experiences will be familiar; some will be a surprise. Pioneer Girl re-introduces readers to the woman who defined the pioneer experience for millions of people around the world.
It also explores the history of the frontier that the Ingalls family traversed and the culture and life of the communities Wilder lived in. This groundbreaking volume develops a fuller picture of Wilder s life and times for the millions of readers who wish to learn more about this important American author. It contains one hundred and twenty-five images, eight fully researched maps, and hundreds of annotations based on numerous primary sources, including census data, county, state, and federal records, and newspapers of the period.
