Harry Potter News

    "Harry Potter" author J-K Rowling is posting a new story online to help entertain children and families stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Rowling says she wrote "The Ickabog" more than a decade ago as a bedtime fairy tale for her children, and it has sat in her attic as she focused on writing books for adults.

    The first two chapters were posted online today, with free daily installments to follow until July 10th.

    The book will be published in print later this year, and Rowling says she will pledge royalties from its sales to projects helping those particularly affected by the pandemic.
