The luckiest 70 kids in the world

05.14.05

I bet these kids will be bragging to their friends:

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling will give a midnight reading of the sixth book in her hugely successful series at Edinburgh Castle in Scotland to coincide with its publication, the writer announced Saturday.

Rowling said on her Web site that newspapers and bookshops in six countries will choose 70 children between ages 8 and 16 who aspire to be journalists to go to Edinburgh for the reading of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”

Those attending the reading early July 16 will get a copy of the book to read before questioning Rowling at a “children’s press conference” the next day, she said.

The search to fill the emptiness seems to know no bounds.
