PIC BY STEWART TURKINGTON www.stphotos.co.uk 07778 334771An 8 year old girl, from Harestock, Winchester, in England, has had her lifelong dream come true- she is finally able to read the Harry Potter books. Kayleigh Ann Hayes’s dream was made true by the charity, Blind Children UK. Kayleigh has a condition that prevented her eyes from developing. She now only has 10% of her sight left. The UK based charity provided Kayleigh with the entire collection of the Harry Potter series, with a font big enough to be able to be read by her. The biggest is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which is split up into 28 volumes alone. To Kayleigh’s shock, the books were signed by J.K. Rowling herself, and they were also accompanied by a note to Kayleigh. The books are suspected to be the biggest Harry Potter books that have ever been printed. Blind’s Children’s CustomEyes® service is to thank for the awesome gift to Kayleigh. She says that she is now excited to read the books, like all her friends are doing. Way to go Jo and Blind Children UK! You can read more about Kayleigh and Blind Children UK in their article here.

Two years ago the world was waiting to read J.K. Rowling’s brand-new novel, The Casual Vacancy! The buzz had been building for months about Jo’s foray into the Adult level of Literary Fiction. The story of a small English village turned upside-down by the death of a local councilman seemed to be a complete turn-around after her blazing success in Children’s Fantasy with the seven Harry Potter books. Before publication, she told the BBC

“Harry Potter truly liberated me in the sense that there’s only one reason to write, for me: If I genuinely have something I want to say and I want to publish it. I can pay my bills, you know, every day. I am grateful for that fact and aware of that fact. I don’t need to publish to make a living. …”

I loved writing for kids, I loved talking to children about what I’d written, I don’t want to leave that behind. But I wanted to write this as well.”

Fans were excited, presales were high, and reviews were mixed. When Thursday, 27th of September arrived the world was splashed in yellow and red and taken to the town of Pagford to meet a cast of characters including Howard and Shirley Mollison, tragic teen Krystal Whedon, and the late Barry Fairbrother.

The Casual Vacancy was an immediate bestseller, in the U.K. and the U.S., and sold over a million copies in the first three days. We have one of those copies to giveaway to celebrate “Casual Vacancy Day”! If you haven’t read it yet, and you want to be prepared before the upcoming BBC mini-series premieres, or you just really want a hardcover, first American edition to add to your collection, enter our “Casual Vacancy Day” celebration.

Filed Under: Fantastic Beasts Film, J.K. Rowling, Pottermore // Sep 23 2014

Kelly West at Cinema Blend has an interesting theory about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film for which Jo is writing a screenplay. Has Jo been dropping hints about the film for fans over the past several weeks? From the exclusive content about Celestina Warbeck on Pottermore,  to the Twitter confession that her Patronus is a pine marten — and even better — that we may get to learn our own Patronus soon, all of these tidbits set the Internet off with excitement on their own.

West’s theory puts them all together into a plausible, and pretty cool, scenario. Seems that Celestina’s father may have a connection to the film’s main character, Newt Scamander.

The fact that they may have been working at the Ministry of Magic at the same time suggests a possible connection between these two characters. If that’s the case, is Celestina’s bio and the information about her parents intentional set-up for something in the Fantastic Beast films? To take that further, is it possible that Mr. Warbeck will be a character in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? The potential overlap in Newt and Warbeck’s work at the Ministry, added to Rowling’s recent update to Pottermore with Celestina’s biography, which includes a tie to a certain (fantastic) beast, has us wondering if this is just a coincidence or if it’s a major clue.

We have no way of knowing if she’s onto something, but we will definitely be looking forward to getting more clues from Jo!

What do you think? She makes a great connection from the Warbecks to the Patronus charm too! Read more at Cinema Blend.

Jo has donated a generous, undisclosed sum towards renovating a former town hall into a music and theater community building in Perthshire, Scotland, according to The Courier. The old Alberfeldy Town Hall was declared surplus by the local council and given to the community in May, after years of campaigning by local citizens. Locus Breadalbane is the citizens’ group assigned to manage the fundraising and renovation of the old building into a 182-seat venue for the arts.

“Ian Menzies, of Locus Breadalbane, said: “It’s going to be a wonderful resource for the community — it’s what we’ve been working toward over the last few years after buying it from the council. We are now bringing it into the 21st century and are fundraising for that.

“The refurbishment of the B-listed building will cost £1.5 million but we had a generous donation from JK Rowling. We are not allowed to say how much it is.”

A spokeswoman for JK Rowling confirmed she had made a donation to the project but declined to comment further.”

Jo owns Killiechassie mansion near the town which may have inspired the donation.
