Previously, we told you that author J.K. Rowling would be going on tour here in the US this fall, making several appearances available for schoolchildren, with one event open to the general public. As a reminder, starting this Monday (July 30) a sweepstakes opens for Harry Potter fans to win tickets to the open event which will be held in New York on October 19. In a press release just issued by the Harry Potter publishers, Scholastic says the following about the Open Boor Tour Sweepstakes:

“One thousand lucky fans will be selected in a sweepstakes and will receive a pair of tickets to an evening with J.K. Rowling at Carnegie Hall on Friday, October 19th at 7 p.m. Rowling 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 her latest book. (Please note that if a winner is under the age of 18, the winner must bring his/her parent or legal guardian as the guest. Additionally, no one under 7 years of age will be admitted to the event.)

US fans ages 7 and older can enter (only ONE PER PERSON) starting Monday, July 30 via www.scholastic.com/harrypotter or print and mail your entry to :

Scholastic
Attn: J.K. Rowling and the Open Book Tour Sweepstakes
557 Broadway
New York, NY 10012

Entries must be submitted by August 31, with the winners notified on or about September 14, 2007. “The J.K. Rowling Open Book Tour will include three events to be held for schoolchildren in Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York City, in addition to the event at Carnegie Hall for sweepstakes winners. School districts in the host cities will select which schools and which children will participate. (Please note there are no public tickets available for these school events.)” GOOD LUCK everyone!

Well, closest thing to sucha spell – enter your kids who are in school and the right age :)

I’ll be entering as well! Although, I dunno how I’d afford getting to NYC. Hear me out, but I think it’s a bit unfair that only schoolchildren can go to the other ones… The ones that have been with Harry the longest, and the ones that grew up with him, hardly have a chance at all to see her.

Wow, the 17th is a Wednesday and I have school so my parents probably wouldn’t let me go. Not fair.

Jo please, please just make a detour to Canada!!! please!!!

I am still confused. Will there be any tickets on sale for the Carnegie Hall show or not? I would definately buy some if there were!! It says “Please note there are no public tickets available for these school events” and that leads me to hope there will be for the NYC date.

Anybody know?

Thanks!! Bethany

I second that.. where is the link?

Avatar Image says:

I couldn’t find a link either, but in the press release Scholastic said people can enter by “printing their name, home address and phone number on a sheet of paper and mailing the entry to: Scholastic Attn: J.K. Rowling and the Open Book Tour Sweepstakes 557 Broadway New York, NY 10012

Hope that helps!

From the “Events” link (bottom of the scholastic.com/harrypotter page), it says that the Open Book Sweepstakes will be updated July 30… erm… (checks calendar) ... I guess they’ll be updating it today, but maybe you’ll want to mail in your entry instead just in case.

It’s updated now, but it says that you have to send in your entry by mail. There is a specific sheet on the website you have to use though.
