JKR Tour Update: Now with Robert Galbraith!
Earlier today, MuggleNet exclusively announced that J.K. Rowling would be embarking on a 2016 worldwide signing tour. In what is sure to be a sold-out series of events, Rowling herself will meet and greet with fans from all countries while raising money for charity, as well as controlling the value of her signed merchandise across the globe.
We are thrilled to add additional information to our initial insight. Within the last hour, it was announced that the event is set to be a DOUBLE BILLING! That’s right! J.K. Rowling will be touring with none other than breakthrough British author and former Royal Military Police officer Robert Galbraith!
From the press release:
Each special signing event will feature an appearance by beloved children’s author J.K. Rowling, followed after a brief intermission by an extremely rare appearance of former military officer-turned pulp detective novelist Robert Galbraith…
The decision to add Mr. Galbraith to the event felt “natural,” says Rowling. And Galbraith agrees.
Were it not for our close friendship, I would not be attending what is sure to be a highly publicized and physically draining experience. As it happens, I am quite fond of Ms. Rowling, and when asked by her to attend, I could not decline.
As if there were not already enough reasons to attend this signing tour, seeing both Rowling AND Galbraith and having the opportunity for both to sign each of their respective works is bound to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all readers.
