UPDATE: A picture of Jo holding her new award can be seen right here via the Telegraph.

According to a recent report released by BBC News, author J.K. Rowling will receive the Edinburgh Award at a ceremony tonight in Edinburgh, the city where she created the famous Potter series.

“So much has happened to me both professionally and personally since I moved here nearly 15 years ago that to receive this recognition is particularly meaningful and special,” Rowling said.

A panel of judges from the fields of arts, business, and science unanimously voted her the 2008 winner.

Congrats to Jo on yet another impressive award!
