THE BRONX - Harper Lee's second novel "Go Set a Watchman" was released on Tuesday.

The book serves as a sequel to Pulitzer Prize-winning "To Kill a Mockingbird." It follows some of the same characters 20 years later.

"Go Set a Watchman" was actually written before "To Kill a Mockingbird." It was discovered in a safety deposit box after Lee's family and friends began to discuss a possible second novel.
