Rowling Teases and Tweets

A new Rowling book? Maybe. While celebrating World Book Day on March 5th, J.K. Rowling offered fans a mysterious glimmer of hope, tweeting:

“Happy #WorldBookDay everyone! I’m celebrating by writing a book.”

No further information was offered, but later that day Rowling also tweeted:

“Why Has Percy Weasley got his arm around Narcissa Malfoy? Find out in my new … kidding. I”M KIDDING #NotAPrequel.

That sent followers into a tizzy. Some, including Time Magazine, did not react well, saying,  “J.K. Rowling Is Now Just Completely Trolling Fans.”

9780316369145_f8fd1Rowling does have a new book of sorts coming this year, Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination, (Hachette/Little, Brown, April 14), an illustrated edition of her 2008  commencement speech at Harvard University.



She continues to write HP-centered pieces for her website Pottermore and has completed the screenplay for the upcoming Warner Bros. film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based on one of HP’s Hogwarts textbooks, which is set to begin shooting in August.
