DIGG this news!

J.K. Rowling has updated her website with the news she would be touring here in the United States in October of 2007. Jo says “The Open Book Tour” will include “four events, three to be held for schoolchildren in Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York City and one event in New York City for any U.S. Harry Potter fan who wins a ticket through a sweepstakes to be held by Scholastic, my US publishers. At each event, I will read from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series, answer questions about the entire series, and sign copies of the latest book.”

Wow.

She continues on with the details:

I will be appearing at the Los Angeles Kodak Theater on Monday, October 15th; in
New Orleans at the Ernest N. Morial Auditorium at the Convention Center on Thursday, October 18th; and at New York’s Carnegie Hall on Friday, October 19th. In September, at the beginning of the 2007/2008 school year, Scholastic will select schools in each of the three cities to send students to the events. Each selected school will then be given a Sorting Hat to place in their school where they will have their own random drawing of students and classes to attend the events.

In addition to these three events for schoolchildren, there will be an event on the evening of October 19, 2007 in New York City, open to fans of all ages. One thousand readers will be selected in a sweepstakes and will receive a pair of tickets to the event at Carnegie Hall on Friday October 19 at 7 p.m.

Scholastic will launch the J.K. Rowling and the Open Book Tour Sweepstakes on July 30, 2007. Visit www.scholastic.com/harrypotter beginning July 30 for information on how to enter and complete rules.

UPDATE: Scholastic has now issued a press release, adding the following:

“What J.K. Rowling loves most is to talk with her readers, and that is what she will be able to do on this very special U.S. tour,” said Lisa Holton, President, Scholastic Trade and Book Fairs. “Almost three months after the publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Rowling will engage in lively conversations with her fans in each of the three cities she will visit, seeking to once again experience touring the way it all began ten years ago and the way she most enjoys … with a book, an author, and her readers.”

Wow! I hope that Europeans can take part in the sweepstakes too! I happen to go to New York in fall… :)

Oops! I was so excited that I posted the same message twice! I’m sorry, Leaky! And other HP fans!

Please tell us that Melissa, Sue and John get to interview her!!! What better opportunity when she’s in you’re own city Melissa.

Avatar Image says:

Ah, it’s wonderful that she’s coming to the United States. Still, I must ask, can’t she come a bit closer to the midwest? XD

Avatar Image says:

Can anyone at Leaky please remove 2 of my comments. My computer got overexited too! And it seems I posted the same comment three (!) times… OMG! What a mess… I’m so sorry!

Avatar Image says:

Holy crap! Must start saving money to get to either New Orleans or New York! I’ll hang out on the sidewalk outside if I have to ! This is awesome!

Avatar Image says:

Wow, isn’t the Kodak theatre where the Academy Awards are held?

And please, please come touring around the rest of the world!

Avatar Image says:

nooo why can’t it be opened to everyone?

Avatar Image says:

Not Jo too!!! Come on, girl! We’re not all schoolchildren!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Yokata, I agree—I wish she could come closer to the midwest. I’m in MN. Chicago would be nice…

Avatar Image says:

Hope she visits Australia – especially after putting an Australian dragon on her Special Edition cover!! :)

Avatar Image says:

LOL. Looks like Jo’s copying Leaky’s lead by going on tour! I hope she holds a HUGE press conference exclusively for the fansites.

Avatar Image says:

There you are see! All you Americans who were being horrible about the fact that Jo was doing something in her own country on the night of the book release rather than in yours, you’ve got 4 events to look forward to! And to the Americans who weren’t being horrible about Jo, I hope you win the tickets!! LOL.

Billywig—yes.

Much as I’m ecstatic that she’s touring, i wish it were a bit more, erm, normal. So many schoolkid events and one sweepstakes event? Well, I’ll just pray I get tix.

Avatar Image says:

She never ceases to amaze. I think it is so wonderful that she does these events for children. Being an ‘older’ fan, much as I wish I could hear her-I think it is poignant that she does this for children. Speaking and appearing for children, she is giving these kids a gift that could be life changing, and I applaud her for being so dedicated to her youngest fans. I also think she is focusing on cities that may have higher ‘under’priviledged populations, and giving those kids a great gift.

Avatar Image says:

What a Sweetheart Jo is!

How kind of her!!

Avatar Image says:

GASP! omg, October 19, 2007! Holy hell I wasn’t expecting this! Ahh, Jo is touring!!! Touring!! In the U.S.! This is the best day, ever!

Avatar Image says:

First I plan a vacation last year that now happens to be the week that the movie comes out, Mugglecast is in town, and DH comes out. Now, I find out that my already purchased trip to New York is 10 days too early for Jo’s visit. My luck just can not get any worse. All I can say is that she had best come back again!

Avatar Image says:

I wish I could go, wish she would do one for ‘older’ kids.

Avatar Image says:

ah!!! i so want to go!!! this is awesome!!

Avatar Image says:

Ugh! I live near NYC, but there’s no way I can enter. I’m Jewish, and the Sabbath stars every Friday night. Why does everything always hppen Friday/Saturday? I’ve never been able to attend a release party, never been able to see a movie the day it came out, and now THIS? I feel like screaming…

Avatar Image says:

HAH HAAA!!!! I wish I could see Laura Mallory’s face when she hears about this!!! She’ll do her nut!!!

To all of you Americans that are going to enter, good luck! The people that get to go to these events will surely have a fantastic time! I think that it is wanderful that 3 of these events are for school kids- surley it can only be a great thing that even more children will get into reading because of Jo and her books.

Avatar Image says:

Just read it on her website, clicked here, and it was here already. I wonder how many seconds pass between the two events. :-)

That’s all so very nice, but, again, most of the fans will probably be too awestruck to get any information of value from Jo, and if somebody does ask her a great question in a crowd, it likely won’t be recorded. :-( And journalists will be asking Jo stuff about herself, not about the books and the wizarding world.

Perhaps another Memerson interview in the future? Hopefully…

Avatar Image says:

Fantastic! I hope she comes to the area of the country I am in. This will more than likely be the last time she will ever do this. We are going to miss Jo ,our lives are so much richer with her [work ]in them.

Avatar Image says:

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so I come on the site and I’m all like YAY!!!!! TOUR IN USA!!!!! and then I have to be like “darn it,” no stop relatively close to me, not even a border state, but I guess we can’t pllease everyone….

Avatar Image says:

Looks like the only chance older readers will get a chance to speak with her is if they win the sweepstakes drawing. Sorry, guys. Cross your fingers for NYC unless your of the press.

Avatar Image says:

This is great news, at least some Americans will get a chance to see her.

Avatar Image says:

To Neil in Scotland—LOL, yes, Laura Mallory will have kittens. :)

To MMK-I am Jewish as well, but for this, I would travel to NYC and see JKR. Can you not make an exception? I don’t think it’s God’s intention that we sacrifice all of the things that matter to us just for the sake of claiming we are observant of traditions. It is not like you will have to eat shellfish and pork or anything! It’s debatable what “Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy” could mean-what better way than to go hear literature and have a great discussion with smart people?? :)

Avatar Image says:

Congrats to the Americans who will be able to take part in this =)

Now… when is she going to tour her own country? =(

Avatar Image says:

Why can’t they do something like this in Canada? oh well, good luck to the winners!

Avatar Image says:

Argh, I am so mad! I wish she would come to Asia! There are so many fans in Asia! :D Come here Jo!

Avatar Image says:

OK! OK! My heart, My Heart. There is so much excitment an old gay can take in one day, BUT I GOING TO TRY! All I can say is WoW, I would love to attend one of these tours, if nothing more than to say thank you for the love you have shown us all, of course that would probably be all I could get out before I kill over from the excitment of being in the company of so much talent. Well I’try and enter, but wishing everyone in my HP Fandom Family, Good Luck!

Avatar Image says:

Would it be so hard to add Chicago? Or Detroit? Once again, the midwest gets screwed. We’re not all rich and can travel to New York or Los Angeles.

Avatar Image says:

sorry everyone…and correction is in order here from my last post That should say OLD GAL, see what happens when your heart races faster than your fingers.

Avatar Image says:

Kris- “Argh, I am so mad! I wish she would come to Asia! There are so many fans in Asia! :D Come here Jo!” & Laurel- “Would it be so hard to add Chicago? Or Detroit? Once again, the midwest gets screwed. We’re not all rich and can travel to New York or Los Angeles.”

Guys, go easy will you? Try and remamber something- Jo is a writer not a rock star!!! She doesn’t have to tour at all. On top of that, she’s also a full time mother of 3 children, 2 of which are very young and I’m sure Jo won’t want to spend too long away from them.

Avatar Image says:

Well, that kicks me out. School will be in session for me and I’d rather not miss ANYTHING.

Avatar Image says:

I understand how everyone on here feels, I’m so excited that she is coming to the US to, but I’m from eastern Kentucky and there is now way I can afford to go to New York or LA when I’m trying to help my family. Neil in Scotland I agree my mom is a full time mother of 3 children the only difference is we are older but it is still hard.

Avatar Image says:

To all the people talking about buying your tickets…better STOP. You have to WIN tickets to enter ANY of these events. For three of them you have to be school children and for the ‘public’ one, you have to be one of the 1,000 winners of the sweepstakes. I, too, got overly excited when I saw this and started planning my trip to see her, then I read the news more closely. Stinks that we cannot ALL just buy tickets to see her, but can you imagine the huge mob of people? That’d be entirely too overwhelming! So, I see the need for restrictions..guess we’ll all just have to hope we win that contest!

Avatar Image says:

Hmmm….You aren’t THE Neil from Scotland are you?

It’s great fun that she’s doing that, but as a European I can’t help but again feel left out…

Avatar Image says:

Laurel I completely agree with you.

Avatar Image says:

FINALLY! A sweepstakes I can enter! I’m so stoked. I can’t wait to enter! Wish I could go to the event in New Orleans, though. That’s a lot closer to home, lol. Oh well, a special event for school children isn’t something I’d want to crash. I’ll hold out for New York!

Avatar Image says:

“Hmmm….You aren’t THE Neil from Scotland are you?”

eileen, not sure what you mean?? But as far as I know I’m the only one the post in the comments under that name.

Avatar Image says:

I hope you guys get a chance to interview her again.

Avatar Image says:

That’s awesome she’s coming to NYC because I’ll be living there for school in October..but you have to win tickets how much would it suck if you’re right in the city and could go but dont win tickets to the event?! not cool…I’m going to enter and hope I win because seriously this is one of first times ill be in the right place and the right time. i think all the events should be open adults..we’re waay more obsessive than school children!

Avatar Image says:

Well, Jo’s Hubby is Neil, from Scotland, and he would reference the kids at home-since he’s the Dad. That’s all- lol

Avatar Image says:

Hah ha!! I was a bit slow on the uptake there, eileen! Am I Jo’s husband? I wish!!! LOL

Avatar Image says:

Ah well…that’s good, because then we would harass you endlessly for details!

Ciao…

Avatar Image says:

WOWWWWWWWW! I wish she would come to WISCONSIN! Gosh darn! :D Sounds cool though :)

Avatar Image says:

i definately plan to enter! i live in ky but go to school in massachusetts. hopefully i win and then i can leave right after my classes and make it to nyc in 4 hours! save my seat, jo! :)

p.s. I second Neil’s comments. Jo definately can’t be everywhere and I am sure she is doing the best she can.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, isn’t she nice?

Wish I were American or British. Is there any chance she’d go on an European tour, too?

Have fun, all you lucky ones! :)

Avatar Image says:

Do we have to win a contest to go to the LA one? Or can anyone go?

Avatar Image says:

Geraldine Julienne, I think you have to win a ‘schoolchildren contest’ to go to the LA one. The only one for ‘public’ attendance will be the last NYC one (and you still have to win a contest for that).

Avatar Image says:

For those who live in countries other than the US or Britain: Maybe she is planning on touring Asia, Australia and othe rparts of Europe. We have to remember that she does have small children so she may be planning to stagger the tours so that she can spend time at home in between. Maybe I’ll try to win ticket. I’m due for some good luck, right?!

Avatar Image says:

“Here in the United States?”

Don’t you mean there in the United States.

Avatar Image says:

YAAAAAAAY! ..was hoping we’d get the chance to get our books signed..good luck everyone on the sweepstakes! and hopefully for those of us who don’t make it.. Melissa, Sue and John will be there to catch it.. very awesome! .. Thankyou Jo!!

Avatar Image says:

Shane, you said exactly what I was thinking. I am 40 and us olders have to hope we win a ticket through the sweepstakes to go. And I will be in NYC first week in Oct. I was so excited when I first read that she was going to be there. Then read further, and got discouraged. Sweepstakes. OH PLEASE!!! I hope I win one. lol. And it does make sense doing it that way. There would be a huge mob of us, unorganized.I hope they play this live at least, like the did with the 5th book. Remember that? That was awesome. Watching it on my putter. Let’s just pray we do win. Good luck to my fellow HP family fans! :)

Avatar Image says:

Awwwww..one more reason to love Jo!! I think the events for the schoolchildren sound great. And it’s not easy going to be easy for them to get in either, seeing that they have to be from one of the three cities, in which are tons of schools, and then the sorting hat will choose from all of the kids in those schools who gets to go. Definatly a tough one, but it sounds like a fun and fair way to pick and choose who from all those kids will get to go. As to the other event in New York, I certainly plan to enter…I’m just grateful that it’s open to “All Ages”!! As this 33 year old is definatly not a kid in body anymore! Oh and if Melissa doesn’t get to interview Jo while she’s in New York (or better yet sooner), I think I’ll cry!!

Avatar Image says:

I got all excited about New Orleans (it’s in driving distance, and everyone in HP fandom seems to forget about Texas…..) until I realized it’s just for kids. But thank goodness the one in New York is actually open to fans of all ages.

Avatar Image says:

OMG I AM SO EXCITED.. I’m in Massachusetts so I could travel to NY.. but I really agree with Neil in Scotland… she has no duty or anything to tour!

Avatar Image says:

Good for JKR, choosing New Orleans as one of her stops! That seems very like her. She’s someone I’d really like to know, totally outside of HP.

As for the “why not my town?” whiners-it’s unbelievable to me that she is touring at all, because she sure doesn’t need to-it’s not like she needs to promote HP7!!!

Avatar Image says:

What’s with the strike-throughs? Did I accidentally put in some kind of code?

Avatar Image says:

How exciting! I knew we wouldn’t run out of things to talk about on the podcasts! I’ll be nine months pregnant, so I won’t be able to go, but I hope we’ll get to watch it on video on Leaky!

Avatar Image says:

This sucks! I got SOOOOO excited when I read the title and then find out I was excited for NOTHING. The majority of fans are NOT school children. The true fans are older. :( I am so sad. What about Chicago? Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the US! ARGH!!!!!!!!! Why do you have to win tickets? Why can’t we all just kill each other to get one? Oh well.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, wow and wow, to meet Jo….would be wonderous and wonderful. And yes I agree with my fellow fans in the Chicago area…sad but true, only 1000 winners and only New York (she must really like it there)...but by God I will either scrape up the money and plan to fly that weekend or else enter the contest and keep my fingers crossed that I win tickets!!

Avatar Image says:

FYI I am a “true fan” and I am in high school… that’s often what my friends from school and I talk about, and that’s why I am having an HP party w/ them this summer. But besides that, I totally agree w/ jenn… it’s so nice of jo to go to New Orleans!

Avatar Image says:

Whilst I like that Jo is touring the US and am excited for the school children in NY, LA and New Orleans, once again the upper Midwest (Minnesota) gets ignored.

East & West Coast get the majority of the tour events, because I belive that’s where the major TV networks are located.

Oh, well, I’ll just have to do with the TV spots.

Avatar Image says:

Just noticed I forgot the ‘e’ in believe.

I too am one of the ‘older’ fans of 40+ unfortunately work keeps me out of the NYC visit plus cash for the aeroplane and hotels, etc.

Avatar Image says:

Well, to be honest I was jumping for joy. My dream is to be in the presence of Jo and hopefully for her to sign my book. But as I read more and more into it, my heart was sinking deeper and deeper. Only 4 stops? I live in Florida, but I’d go to New York to attend. 3 of the 4 only for schoolchildren? I just graduated and even if I was in school, I am in Florida, not one of the 3 states qualifying… I’d pay what I had to in order to go, because this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But, well, to my deception, it’s not open for the public… and with my luck (never won anything in my life) I wouldn’t win a ticket. I am very depressed. I really got my hopes up and now I feel pretty damn bad.

Avatar Image says:

So, am I right in thinking that for BOTH NYC events you have to win tickets? Man…I guess I’ll have to enter the sweepstakes. I would happily just buy tickets like last time if I could!

Avatar Image says:

Once more I wish I was a kid… Does the sweepstakes include airfare I wonder… -B

Avatar Image says:

Wow! Those lucky students.. I find it slightly unfair that only schools in those cities can participate, but hey, she can’t meet EVERYONE. :) Let’s hope those 1000 tickets go to good fans!!

Avatar Image says:

is it possible to buy tickets for the carnegie hall event?

Avatar Image says:

UNFORTUNATELY, you can NOT buy tickets AT ALL, for ANY of the events… :-(

Avatar Image says:

LOLOL! And it starts, fans that just a few weeks ago were sayin ‘nooooo why is she only doing release event in UK – not fair not fair’ are now back bellyachin about ‘why is she not playing MY hometown/backyard/school’

Crumbs ppl – please cheer up – she can’t possibly please you all!! Even if she went to every country on a year long tour of everywhere – you’d still get people bellyachin about the dates not being quite right for their schedule!!

If you’re lucky enough then go – if not do what everyone in the rest of the world (you know ppl in countries other than UK and USA!) do – read the coverage and watch the vids that i’m sure leaky will put up!

Oh and i’m UK person! I’ve entered the release date event one and if i get to go i’ll be pleased, if not i’ll still be pleased – try to be happy! Its the secret to a fulfilling life!

Rant over.

Avatar Image says:

I got so excited about this I missed my turn on the interstate and went about four miles out of my way. I was jabbering to my kids and forgot where I was going…I live near New Orleans.

Avatar Image says:

Im happy Joe is coming but I also wish she was coming to Chicago. I guess other places are maybe worse but I think the midwest also gets kinda screwed for events like this. I live in Kansas and its soooo boring.

Avatar Image says:

Yes, hedwigthegreat!

THANK YOU for showing some sense!

It’s getting really annoying how shes not going to DC…

ITS THE CAPITAL!!!

Avatar Image says:

Dear MMK and Rachel I am Jewish too, and I love everything Jo does. Sorceror’s Stone got me through 36 hours of labor with my oldest kid, so I owe her one! Rachel, maybe God wants exactly this – to spend 24 hours in a spiritual island, where all concerns of daily life – including the mad dash for fun some of us have on the weekends – are suspended. A day to step off the merry-go-round of life and contemplate its meaning. I think waiting till Saturday night for the book (dashing out for it the INSTANT the Sabbath ends and reading all night) adds something to the experience. MMK, you are welcome to come to me for Shabbat, and we’ll pretend we’re not at ALL watching the clock! Then we stay up all night with our snacks of choice and read….It’s good I don’t work on Sundays!

Avatar Image says:

I’m glad she’s doing this for school aged children. They are the ones she wrote the book for and with all the adults asking them questions, there simple questions are often left out.

However, I’m skeptical of how she is going about this. It’s a contest which can ultimately pit parent against child. Many of you have said you are Jewish, what if its on a Friday and the child is picked. They might not be able to go because of their religious beliefs. Parents and God are made to look like the bad guys when they are just teaching their child about tradition.

What if a child school is picked? The child may not be able to go because the parent doesn’t want them to enter because they are against Harry Potter or they are chosen but can’t attend for the same reason. Parents again are made to be the bad guy (possibly causing a fued in the home). Yes, JKR would say that’s the parents problem, but the child is the fan and she should think about them.

The other scenario is that why aren’t the parents going with the children. If this is school time then children will be going with teacher’s and chaperones, not a parent. Ms. Mallory could use this as a defense and claim that if she isn’t preaching witchcraft she should allow parents to attend with their children.

Which schools will be chosen. Will it just be public? Will parochials and private schools be able to enter? Will it just be successful schools which are rewarding the students for excellent work? In any case that will discourage young readers if they don’t have a chance to attend.

Finally, this excludes the many children who are home schooled. Unless the program in which there parents have to submit papers to are choosen, the many students in this scenario won’t be chosen.

I’m just a bit scared that this is not the fairest way to go. JKR if you read this, you might want to address these concerns. As a teacher, I’m grateful that you are doing this for the young fans. I’m not thrilled on the method.

I think it would be better if the contest was open to resident children of that city between certain ages. Parents would have to sit in the back of the theatre while their children sit up front and get their book signed.

Wish you luck JKR!

Avatar Image says:

Oh, HermyOwnNinny, thanks for the sympathy- and for the invite of course, though I unfortunately cannot accept(I can only imagine my parents’ expressions if I told them I wanted to stay with someone from online I hadn’t met). An Mari, I absolutely agree with everything you said. Anyway, I wouldn’t give up observing Shabbat for anything… not even reading Deathly Hallows 24 hours earlier. Or meeting Jo.

Though I must ask: What’s wrong with having a release on, say, a Wednesday?

Avatar Image says:

MMK – I totally understand your parents (and your caution)Although you can assume if I’m a Sabbath observer that I’m probably NOT a devil worshipper or into torturing dinner guests! I too would love a Wednesday release date! When HBP came out, I had a reserved copy at Barnes and Nobles. Shabbat ended late – I made it with 4 minutes to spare for closing. The saleslady there (also a Potter fan) said she had been looking for me since sundown. She was kind enough to offer no spoilers, though I could tell she was ITCHING to chat. These Saturday night treks for the books will always be just a part of the whole Harry Potter experience for me. Fond memories.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah… it’s extra difficult in the summer because it gets dark so late. I ended up doing the same thing as you did for HBP- though the salesperson was way more annoyed that some crazy kid dashed in at closing time. This time, though, I ordered mine offline, and it’s supposed to arrive on the 21st, so hopefully I’ll be able to open it as soon as Shabbat ends (and I find the scissors).

I hardly think going to three US cities qualifies as “touring America.” It’s nice that Ms Rowling is making a visit – for her at least – but the 99.99% of people in the US who won’t see or hear her first hand could just as easily get the same information if she just gave a Leaky or newspaper interview.

Avatar Image says:

Well personally I think her coming over here stinks. After book 7 comes out, I’ll never read anything else she writes because I truly think she is not that focused on her fans.

You can flame me if you want but I’ve recently been to a book signing by another favored author who sat there and hand signed her signature over 1200 times and she was still happy and pleasant and went on to do it again three days later. And will continue to do it again and again. Plus my other favored author welcomes all of her fans no matter what age.

JK Rowling… she does her US Tour in which only one event is open for adults. Let’s just slap her adult fans who have been reading her books since book one in the face why don’t you?

She’s sooooo focused on the new fans that the rest of us who helped her make her millions are kitty by the door.

I think that we her fans are the end to her means. I think that if she truly cared about her fans that not only would she be more willing to do more book signing events in the US and the UK but that she would remember that she’s the one who took forever to finish the series and open her events up to those who made her money and were 11, 12, and 13 when Book 1 came out. Hello! It’s not our fault that we got too old for you to pay attention to.

Avatar Image says:

Unhappy… so why are you on Leaky… do you even care about harry potter? jk rowling has billions of fans all over the world, and a life as well. so if you’re not happy, i frankly don’t care.
