The Oprah Show is searching for Harry Potter fans willing to appear on the programme to talk about how J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series has inspired them or their family. A short description on the application to appear on the show reads as follows:

Are you or your children obsessed with the Harry Potter series? Have you read all the books and seen all the movies multiple times? How has the series helped you bond with your children or parents? Has J.K.'s rags to riches journey as a single mother-turned-billionaire inspired you? Has her story motivated you to write, start your own business or try something you've only dreamed about before?
What life lessons has the Harry Potter series taught you? Did reading about the death of Harry's parents helped you cope with loss in your own life? Have the books helped you escape from a difficult time in your own life? If you could ask J.K. Rowling a question, what would it be?
Read the full description and write in to the programme at this link on the Oprah website. There is currently no indication of when this episode will air.

Many thanks to our friends at MuggleNet for the heads up!

asking JK questions is like an endless list for most of us she should be careful what she asks for she may just get a 64 page application

I know I won’t be able to go on the show because I’m in the UK, but the site lets you submit your story no matter what country you are from. So I have submitted mine!

I’m not going to do it, because I’m not old enough, and I don’t want to be on TV, but how I would love to be in the audience.
I vote Andrew Slack, or at least someone from the HPA, to apply. XD

I hope whoever gets chosen will represent our fandom well, and really show how Harry Potter has affected individuals, families, and the world. I’m sure they will, of course, because HP fans are just awesome like that.
Best of luck to all who apply!
