BBC News is reporting that J.K. Rowling will appear at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on October 6, 2012 to talk about her first adult novel, The Casual Vacancy, and sign copies of the book afterward.
The talk with Ms. Rowling will be moderated by documentary film-maker James Runcie. She will sign copies of The Casual Vacancy following the event.
Set in the small town of Pagford, the novel is described by the publisher as being "blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising."
