It’s TIME for Harry Potter
Jun 15, 2003
Thanks to Alison and Ebony for sending us the TIME Magazine article about OotP. The article covers JK Rowling’s correspondence with Catie Hoch throughout the six-year-old’s illness in 2000, the upcoming slew of midnight parties, churches that use the books to reach out to the children among their membership, censorship and the expected length of the book.
Among those quoted are Harold Bloom (complaining about the book as usual), Maurice Sendak, author of Where The Wild Things Are, who showers it with praise, and teacher Ebony Thomas, who’s also a longtime fandomer and fanfic author.
