I had hoped to visit the wonderful Dutton's this past week during a brief stopover in LA en route NY but sadly time ran out..............
Odds and ends
Is there life after Harry?...........That's the question facing J.K. Rowling, whose modern day cultural icon, Harry Potter, has been retired with the seventh and final book in the series. Luckily for her fans, there are reports that she is already at work on a new book - this time an adult detective story. She has been spotted in Scottish cafes working on the project. As of yet, no official confirmation. But if these rumors are correct it means that children who grew up with Harry, Ron and Hermoine will now have new J.K. Rowling creations to greet them in adulthood.
Is there life after Harry?, Part II..........What about all the young children who have only just recently come to Harry Potter and are too young to wait out Rowling's rumored mystery novel? (see above). For them, fortunately, there are plenty of other exciting series to jump into with both feet.
