Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.
Tell me this is not the most awkward thing you’ve ever seen.
Harry Potter and JK Rowling in 2012: Early in the year, Harry Potter Kinnect for X-box was released, JK Rowling’s website underwent a make-over, the HP studio opened for tours, and Chamber of Secrets came out on Pottermore. In May, JK Rowling received the Freedom of the City of London award in recognition of her services to children’s literature. In July, JK Rowling read an excerpt from Peter Pan at the Olympics opening ceremony, and at the same event there was a 40ft tall puppet of Tom Riddle! Later on in September, Jo’s novel The Casual Vacancy was published - her first published novel outside the Harry Potter series. The year finished with a live interview by Bloomsbury, Wonderbook being released, and the first chapters of Prisoner of Azkaban opening on Pottermore. Here’s to hoping that 2013 will have just as many great moments for Jo and her fans!
