Harper Lee, the reclusive author of the beloved best-selling novel “To Kill a Mockingbird,” will publish a second novel in July, her publisher announced Tuesday.

The recently rediscovered book, Go Set a Watchman, was completed in the mid-1950s, in the midst of the civil rights movement. It takes place 20 years after To Kill a Mockingbird. Though it’s effectively a sequel, Ms. Lee actually wrote Go Set a Watchman first. The 304-page novel takes place in the same fictional town, Maycomb, Alabama, and unfolds as Scout Finch, the feisty child heroine of To Kill a Mockingbird, returns to visit her father, Atticus.

Ms. Lee said in a statement released by her publisher that her editor at the time was taken with Scout’s childhood flashbacks, and told her to write a different novel from Scout’s perspective.
