J.K. Rowling Sends Letter from 'Dumbledore' to Shooting Survivor
HARRY POTTER author J.K. Rowling has sent a letter to a teenage shooting victim, Cassidy Stay, who lost her family in the event, in the voice of beloved character Albus Dumbledore, according to The Telegraph.
The letter, which also contained a wand, letters from Hogwars, and a signed copy of the third book in the series THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, comes just a few weeks after Stay paraphrased Dumbledore at a memorial event for her family.
Rowling confirmed that "the contents of the letter remain private."
The Harry Potter novels have now sold approximately 450 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 74 languages. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was recently voted the nation's favourite children's book in a poll by reading charity Booktrust.
Rowling was the first children's author to be voted the BA Author of the Year, and also win the British Book Awards Author of the Year. J.K. Rowling lives with her family in Edinburgh.
