08/01/12

Good morning. It’s Wednesday, August 1, 2012, and this your first early morning briefing.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling will take part in a live worldwide webcast, hosted by Scholastic, on October 11, 2012 at 12n. Additionally, Scholastic will launch its new Harry Potter Reading Club (www.scholastic.com/hpreadingclub), an online destination where young readers can share in their love of all things Harry Potter. Presented by the Harry Potter Reading Club, the live webcast will take Rowling virtually, from her home in Edinburgh, Scotland, into classrooms across the US to talk about Harry Potter, which includes the online Pottermore (www.pottermore.com) experience. Educators can sign up to have their class take part in the webcast now at Scholastic.com/hpreadingclub.

The first 10,000 registrants for the Club will receive a welcome kit including bookmarks, stickers and nametags.
