Rowling Pens “Potter” Prequel to Benefit Charity

Reuters is reporting this evening that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has written an 800-word outline of a prequel to the series that will be auctioned off for charity on June 10 in London by Waterstones. The article goes to say that:

The outline, which ends with the line ‘From the prequel I am not working on — but that was fun!’ is one of 13 story outlines written for the auction by famed authors including new Bond writer Sebastian Faulks and Nobel laureate Doris Lessing.

The money raised will go to charities English PEN and Dyslexia Action.
