JK... Back in Belfast.

A neat little story about Belfast, which hosted the now famous author a few weeks before she was famous.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling will be given a second chance to weave her magic spell on Belfast when she arrives back in town this summer. For the last time JK turned up for a book signing in the city, only 30 people turned up!

"To be fair it was September 1997, and the lady was still comparatively unknown," says Easons book agent, Paul Cushenan. "Had she arrived a month later, it would have been a different story."

"For only weeks after her Belfast appearance, the Philosopher's Stone took off and everyone was screaming for the author. In Belfast, we had two parties of school kids to meet and greet her, but her book signing wasn't exactly crowded."

And you can bet they're trying to get her back. Thanks to IHP for the tip off.
