After Months of Anticipation, New Harper Lee Novel Released

Shortly after sunrise Tuesday, the doors opened at the Old Courthouse Museum in Monroeville, Alabama, and a bell tolled.
In the hometown and residence of Harper Lee, it was time to start a marathon and occasionally painful reading of "Go Set a Watchman," the second book no one ever thought they would see from the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird."
Lee fans worldwide stayed up late, awakened early and dashed off during meal breaks to pick up a copy of the year's most anticipated novel, "Go Set a Watchman," which came out Tuesday after months of the most unusual pre-publication attention in memory.
