J.K. Rowling to Sign Copies of “Deathly Hallows” in London July 21
May 23, 2007
J.K. Rowling has updated her website with news regarding a book signing for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on July 21. Our favorite author has announced a new contest for fans to attend this moonlight signing of copies of the last Harry Potter book the night of the release where she will also read from the novel. Jo writes:
On July 21st 2007, I shall be doing a mammoth signing through the night! 1700 Harry Potter fans will have the opportunity of having their copy of â€˜Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallowsâ€™ signed by me at the Natural History Museum in London. They will receive a free copy of the seventh Harry Potter book, courtesy of Bloomsbury, my UK publishers. 500 of these fans will also be randomly selected to hear me read from the book at midnight.
To receive tickets for this event, you will need to enter a ballot via the following websites: bloomsbury.com (for UK and Ireland residents) and scholastic.com (for the US). Other English-speaking publishers may also be allotted tickets; keep an eye on their websites.
It has been a long time since Iâ€™ve done a signing and had the chance to speak to readers individually, so Iâ€™m delighted that we are launching the book in this way. It will be wonderful for me to get the chance to speak to people who have already read a few chapters while in the queue!
Good luck if youâ€™re applying for tickets, and if youâ€™re successful, Iâ€™ll see you shortly after midnight on July 21st!
