Rowling Updates Us on Harry Potter

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 5.45.54 AMJ.K. Rowling has written a new Harry Potter story for her Pottermore website! The story takes the form of a gossip column by the Daily Prophet’s Rita Skeeter that covers the reunion of Dumbledore’s Army at the Quidditch World Cup (the first new Potter material in years, and it’s a World Cup tie-in?).

Anyone who’s taken an English class will know that Rita Skeeter is what we call an ‘unreliable narrator,’ as such, the accuracy of her story has to be questioned.  Still, the basic facts presented about the life of the now 34 year old Harry and friends are most likely true.

You can read the story on Pottermore now, but you’ll have to sign up for a free account.
