The New York Times is reporting Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling will be in attendance at a press conference tomorrow morning, following an expected YouTube announcement regarding Pottermore. The articles states:

Ms. Rowling will appear at the Victoria and Albert Museum on Thursday morning. Her spokeswoman instructed reporters in an e-mail that Ms. Rowling would not permit one-on-one interviews. Filming, recording and photography will also be banned from the news conference.

This information has not been confirmed, but tomorrow (Thursday, June 23) at 7am EST is the estimated time at which the countdown clock on YouTube.com/JKRowlingAnnounces is slated to go online.
As always, stay close to Leaky for all the latest on Pottermore.

But wait a second: no filming, no recording, no fotography?? How will the world know about the contents of this press conference???? I gotta it: by owls!! :-)Avatar ImageNoz says: I just hope it won't be a mmorpg. This would be quite disappointing as far as I'm concerned. I hope for something around an online diagon Alley (as seen on the supposedly fake pictures of pottermore which can be found on the internet), centered around the long awaited Scottish Book, as a massive online encyclopaedia. Followed by a book release ? I miss the midnight openings ! Hogwarts, a History, hardcover... I want it !

Because it does exist ; )!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: OMG I cant bear the suspense anymoreAvatar ImageFawkes1706 says: Awesome! Can't wait to find out!! Hopefully youtube doesn't crash with so many people. Now the world won't end after DH Part 2! Avatar Imageshayshay says: Another website is saying it will be an online game with prizes like wands hidden in the muggle world, how awesome would that be? Avatar Imagesboyer06 says: found out this morning before having to leave for work! best way to start the day is with harry! which i do everyday lol. I got all the audio books and listen to them in my car instead of the radio. so stoked for October to come!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Oh what fun!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: ALL HAIL JO ROWLING!!!!
