Remember that political fairytale J.K. Rowling was working on?

This one:

“a story that I describe as a political fairy tale. And it’s for slightly younger children. So I think that will probably be the next thing that I finish. I’m not in a mad hurry to publish. I would like to take my time.” -J.K. Rowling, A Year In The Life

It was supposed to be her first children’s book after the conclusion of Harry Potter but it never made it to book shelves. So what happened to this unpublished work from J.K. Rowling?

For a second year in a row, J.K. Rowling is featured on “Time’s Top 30 Influential People on the Internet”. No shocker there!

From Time :

More than any other author, J.K. Rowling has cast a spell over the Internet, using Twitter and her website Pottermore to expand the Harry Potter universe. Over the past year, she has revealed everything from why Hagrid can’t produce a Patronus to the fact that Hogwarts tuition is free to the history of North American magic in general (though some criticized her for using details from existing Native American legends). Rowling has also made headlines for fighting with a member of Scottish Parliament, comparing Donald Trump to Voldemort and offering support to fans with depression.—Ashley Ross


Pottermore is releasing new writing by J.K. Rowling this week all about Magic in North America to prepare fans for the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. So far, in Parts One and Two we have learned about early wizards visiting the continent in the 14th-17th centuries, and their connection to the indigenous peoples prior to settlement by European Muggles (known in America as No-Maj). In Part 2, she details the struggle of magic born settlers in the New World, including the infamous Salem Witch Trials, which led to the eventual Magical Congress of the USA (MACUSA), and the rise of the Scourers, “an unscrupulous band of wizarding mercenaries of many foreign nationalities, who formed a much-feared and brutal taskforce committed to hunting down not only known criminals, but anyone who might be worth some gold.” (Guarantee we will learn more about them in FBAWTFT!)

The Salem Witch Trials in the 17th century severely affected the Wizarding population of North America

(The Salem Witch Trials in the 17th century severely affected the Wizarding population of North America.)

Keep following Pottermore, and @AlwaysJKRowling to learn more this week, including all about the founding of Ilvermorny, North America’s own Wizarding Academy.
