The Adventure of Joanne Rowling
Joanne was born on July 31 1965 at Yale Central Hospital in England, Rowling always had a great love for literature and always saw herself as, shy and freckly with no sports ability. Rowling started wring children’s learning novels, but they never really got as popular as she wanted. Her pen name “J.K Rowling” was adopted from her nick-name “Jo” and her mother’s first initial “K”, The reason she chose such a odd name was that of the publisher of the first “Harry Potter” book in her series, He told her, use a relative’s initials or something of that matter for easier publishing purposes.
The story of how the amazing world of Harry Potter as we know it today came to her while on a delayed train transfer, she says that the idea of being on a old rumbly train made her mind wonder about a life of “witch Craft and Wizardry”, she told the new York times news reporter that she really wanted to write her thoughts and the many ideas down but, she was ...view middle of the document...

She also said that she was originally only going to write one novel on the harry potter character, but after the copies sold rocketed within just 2 years she got demands for a second copy by many different publishing companies.
Hallett, Vicky and the U.S. news and world reporter says, ’Unfortunately, poor kids aren't always part of the Potter universe. Although the children in Barone's study managed to snag copies of the books, that's not often the case. It's what Allington calls the "good reader" effect. Kids who are already proficient readers or who have parents with enough time and energy to help them with problem spots are enjoying the Harry Potter books, but other kids don't get the opportunity. (And they arguably need the books the most--kids from lower socioeconomic strata tend to have the lowest reading scores.) "My fear is that this is another case of the rich get richer because they're the ones most likely to experience it," Allington says. Rebecca Constantino, founder of Access Books, a nonprofit based in Los Angeles that stocks school libraries, states "I don't know many inner-city kids who are excited about the sixth book coming out," she says. "It’s months to wait for it at the library, and then they'll forget about it. They're going to give up."
Warner Bros. Entertainment Group Stated, “We are incredibly honored that Jo has chosen to partner with Warner Bros. on this exciting new exploration of the world of wizardry which has been tremendously successful across all of our businesses,” said Warner Bros. Chief Executive Officer Kevin Tsujihara. “She is an extraordinary writer, who ignited a reading revolution around the world, which then became an unprecedented film phenomenon. We know that audiences will be as excited as we are to see what her brilliant and boundless imagination conjures up for us.”
