J.K. Rowling back in the spotlight

by kmdbookworm

With J.K. Rowling’s first book coming out since the final “Harry Potter” novel, she is back in the spotlight.

“A Casual Vacancy” will hit stores Thursday, and is quite a departure from her stories about Harry and the magical world in which he resides. It’s a fiction novel written for adults about a local election in a small town in England.

I’ll be picking up a copy on Thursday, and I am hoping that Rowling will continue to have success post-HP.

If you’re also awaiting her new book, check out this great piece on the author in The New Yorker to bide you over until Thursday.
