As reported previously, J.K. Rowling gave an interview that was streamed live. A video of this interview is now available at Scholastic.com. J.K. Rowling answered questions about the success of Harry Potter, the encouragement she received to write, and many questions on Harry Potter cannon (such as her favorite moments in the books, the first/last sentence she wrote, and the question posed to her by Pottermore).

What can I say…loving this. Got all teared up when she started reading. My everlasting wish is to sit with her, somewhere in the nature, and just listen to her voice…Hah, I knew she was in Gryffindor. I’m in Slytherin, and proud of it :) Even Jo, as a Gryffindor is misjudging us. We’re, above all, fighters. And believe me, for all good reasons :)

Fantastic Interview. I loved listening and watching this. Isn’t it wonderful to know that J.K. is also on Pottermore. Pottermore is really a great experience for re-reading the books and experiencing the magical world that has been created. Thanks to Jo and the fantastic team who are working to make this such an experience.

I loved that too. Especially what her daughter said: “We should all want to be in Hufflepuff” and what Rowling herself said about Hufflepuffs. I have always felt it but it’s just nice to hear it from her. “They stayed for all the right reasons” to stand up to Voldemort at the end of DH.
