The author of the Harry Potter books will stop in three cities to give Americans readings of her latest novel. The October tour will have three announced stops: in Los Angeles, in New Orleans, and in New York City. Rowling will read from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at these events.
Scholastic Books is holding a contest in which 1,000 winners will be chosen, and each winner will be given two passes to a Rowling appearance at New York's Carnegie Hall. Details will be announced July 31 at Scholastic's website.
Update, July 2: There seems to be some confusion. As I've emailed the readers who posted comments below, the contest is not being run by this website or by Budget Travel. To enter, you'll need to mark your calendars for July 31 and visit the website run by Scholastic.
