Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has contributed a special “storycard” as part of a charity auction in the UK. Bloomberg reports that Jo joins authors such as Richard Ford, Nick Hornby, Doris Lessing, Tom Stoppard and Sebastian Faulks who have all written an original piece on a “blank A5 sheet ” for this auction, which will benefit the English PEN and Dyslexia Action. The auction will take place in London, England on June 10 at a branch of Waterstone’s book sellers, and “will be restricted to an invited audience and bidders.” “It’s impossible to say how much this auction will raise,” said Gerry Johnson, managing director of Waterstone’s, in the statement. “With the caliber of authors involved, then really the sky is the limit. Owning an original piece of work by a favorite writer is the ultimate limited edition for fans.’‘
