Yesterday Cheryl Klein, an editor with Arthur A. Levine Books and Scholastic, appeared on the fine NPR program “Talk of the Nation,” and discussed her work as continuity editor of the Harry Potter novels. Cheryl described her work which involves such things as keeping track of various events in the books (ie ‘does Harry have the invisibility cloak in his pocket or backback, and are their u turns in the plumbing for the bathrooms’), as well as a range of questions from a few listeners. To hear this brief conversation (it runs about eight minutes) about the process of editing the beloved series of Harry Potter books , click this link, then the red button that says “Listen.” Enjoy!
