Lucky winners in the sweepstakes contest to see Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling at her New York Carnegie Hall appearance are now being notified by Scholastic. TLC readers Helene, Didir, and Meghan have sent us very happy owls relaying this most joyful news. If you are among the 1,000 Harry Potter fans who won two tickets to this Open Book Tour stop at Carnegie Hall Friday, October 19th at 7 p.m., please send in your reports and we will post them! Congratulations!

As noted previously, J.K. Rowling will be embarking on an Open Book Tour here in the US in October, making three appearances in Los Angeles, New York City, and New Orleans for school children. Scholastic, the US publishers of the Harry Potter novels and sponsors of this tour, have now announced the schools in Orleans Parish, Louisiana who will be attending the event on October 18. ALL 80 public schools in Orleans parish will be part of this event, with Scholastic also very generously donating a complete set of the Harry Potter series, books 1-7, to every public school in Orleans Parish and public library in New Orleans as well as “donating 10,000 copies of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first book in J.K. Rowling’s series, to Orleans Parish public schools for students who have not yet read the books and are now ready to begin their Hogwarts journey. ” Amazing. Readers will remember that New Orleans suffered terrible damage from Hurricane Katrina, with many of the libraries along the Gulf coast in Louisiana and Mississippi still in need of replenishment of books. Congratulations to all the lucky schoolchildren in the three cities who will hear our favorite author read from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, receive an autographed copy of the book, and be able to ask Jo questions about the beloved series of books.
