Cheryl Klein judges Potter quiz at book festival

The Decatur Book Festival allows you to “immerse yourself in literature and poetry, meet Pulitzer Prize winners and probe the writers' mind… or you can dress silly, sing loud, laugh a lot and have the cheapest possible family outing.”

Scholastic's Harry Potter “continuity editor” at Scholastic, Cheryl Klein, will judge a Harry Potter quiz on August 30th as part of the festival. spoke to Cheryl about this role, a little about what she's doing post-Harry Potter, and whether she ever encountered inconsistencies in the Potter books: “Changes like that did come up. Talking about them is a little like violating lawyer-client privilege. It’s the author’s job to talk about those.”
