J.K. Rowling Will Be Inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame
From the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize to the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play, J.K. Rowling has earned more than a few awards for her magical writing skills. Now, Rowling is being inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture.
In their brief biography of Rowling, the Museum of Pop Culture mentions some of her work and awards.
In addition to the Harry Potter series, Rowling has published six works related to her wizarding universe, including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2001) and The Tales of Beedle [the] Bard (2008). She has received five honorary degrees from various institutions, including the University of Edinburgh and Harvard University, and has won numerous awards, including the Hugo Award and the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year.
According to GeekWire, Rowling is one of four new inductees. Joining her is the Marvel comic creator Stan Lee, the Legend of Zelda video game series, and the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television show. These creators and works will be joining the ranks of George Lucas, The Princess Bride, and many more in the permanent exhibition at the museum.
