Pride of Britain Awards to recognize Jo
In an article published yesterday by GMTV, we have learned that our favorite author will be recognized alongside several others for her inspirational work at the British Pride Awards:
Twelve years ago, a woman sitting in Edinburgh coffee shop could be seen scribbling in a notebook, creating the life of a schoolboy wizard. Since the success of Harry Potter, Jo has inspired a new generation of avid readers, and she has encouraged a whole host of wannabe writers to put pen to paper. But despite a full-time writing schedule, Jo is also President of the charity One Parent Families, the patron of The Multiple Sclerosis Society and co-founder of the Children's High Level Group, helping young people in care.
The awards will be aired on ITV1 tomorrow (Wednesday) night at 9 PM GMT. If anyone is able to capture video or screenshots of Jo's appearance, please send it in!
