J. K. Rowling has updated her website with information on the Sotheby’s auction, and how her annotated copy of “Philosopher’s Stone” raised £150,000 for English PEN and Lumos. She also added an image from the annotated copy, which features a drawing of Snape. The drawing is captioned with, “Snape, brooding on the unfairness of life.” You can see it here on her site.
