# Meet J.K. Rowling

November 9, 2001 587 Comments

One of the most anticipated movies to ever hit the screen will be in theatres in the next few days. It is based on a series of books that have enthralled youngsters over the past few years. It is responsible for making more children interested in reading than any other series of books (to which I can attest to). So for the next few days the Family Site of the Day will be spending some time with young Harry Potter.

Today’s site is one where visitors can meet the author of the books, J.K. Rowling. At this site you can read about how this Exter University graduate created the first book by writing it at a cafe while her young daughter napped. There are links to the books, a screensaver, a discussion chamber where you can talk about the books with other readers, and a special wizard’s challenge.

This is a great place for anyone who is unfamiliar with Harry and his world. Come back tomorrow when we visit another Harry Potter site, and be sure to share this one with a friend.
