Harry Potter’s creator meets her public: Author J.K.Rowling answers questions from students at a school in Montclair
“J.K. Rowling is a literary phenom.
The three books of her Harry Potter children s novel series are currently Nos. 1, 2 and 3 on both the Wall Street Journal and New York Times fiction best-seller lists, where the first book, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” has spent 42 weeks. The previous record-holder for children s novels, E.B. White s 1952 classic, “Charlotte’s Web,” made best-seller lists for only three weeks.
The Harry Potter series tell the story of an 11-year-old who was orphaned as an infant and grows to discover that he is a wizard born of wizard parents.
Earlier this week, the British author visited the Montclair Kimberley Academy in Montclair, where she gave a reading, signed books and answered questions prepared by pupils from various grades. It was the only school stop on Rowling s current North America book-signing tour.”
