Author J.K. Rowling has contributed a new piece to a book for charity that will be out in October of this year. As noted on the official website of author Jessica Adams, Jo has donated a piece that will be included in  the new Kids' Night In Three. Jessica Adams writes:
"Also on the charity book front we're really excited to have J.K.Rowling on board for Kids' Night In Three, which debuts in October. It's the next in the 'Night' series which I've been editing with various gorgeous individuals since 1999."

Additional information about this book comes from the publishers website as follows:

From the bottom of the sea to the highest mountain, there's a story here for everyone ...Kids' Night In 3 might just be the most amazing collection of stories ever. And every copy you buy helps to raise money for War Child, the aid organisation that helps children all over the world, affected by war.

It's an ocean of bedtime stories, poetry, recipes, hilarious cartoons and cool art to explore!

This fresh and exciting anthology follows in the footsteps of the best-selling Kids' Night In and Kids' Night In 2. With bedtime stories, rainy day stories, holiday reads or as a gift for any occasion - it's another great kids' night in.More than 50 of your favourite children's writers, illustrators, musicians, chefs and some very famous people from Australia and overseas have contributed never-before-seen stories, poems and illustrations to benefit War Child.

Thanks so much Catherine!

Anything new from JKR is always cool & awesome news and, so cool it’s for charity. I sure hope this book is easily available to buy … I just looked at Amazon & they dont have it for pre-order yet (I saw Kids Night in 1 has a story by Eoin Colfer though)
