Today is the 3rd day of the 7 Days of Harry Potter.Today is dedicated to YA Literature's own, J. K. Rowling!
She is living proof that fiction is alive and strong, and writing can be a way of life--and more! Supposedly "richer than the Queen" off the HP books, JKR has it good. She lives in a gigantic house in Scotland with her husband and three children, where, I hope, she is continuing to write.
Visit her (rather awesome) website here!
Jo is also a creator or supporter of many charities and organizations, including:
The proceeds from all of her non-Harry Potter series books (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, and her upcoming HP Encyclopedia)go towards these charities.
Also, ABC has announced that they will be showing Jo's documentary "J. K. Rowling: A Year in the Life" on July 16th, though this date may change. Find out more about the documentary here.
