Morning Brief: February 4

The 55 year wait is over.

It's been over fifty years, but Harper Lee is finally coming out with a second book. She finished "Go Set a Watchman" some time in the mid-1950's, but never got it published. The recently rediscovered book is sort of a sequel of "To Kill a Mockingbird," following the protagonist Scout 20 years later. Lee is hardly appeared in the public eye since publishing her first, iconic book. Let's see if her new book will stand the test of time as well.
