The short, handwritten prequel that JK Rowling
penned for charity will be auctioned off today in London. The story features the misadventures of the Marauders and is set three years before the birth of Harry Potter. According to the BBC, the story ends with the words: “From the prequel I am not working on – but that was fun!”
The money from JKR’s story, plus those of Nick Hornby, Doris Lessing, Margaret Atwood, Lauren Child, Sebastian Faulks, Tom Stoppard and Irvine Welsh will go to two charities —
English PEN (an “international fellowship of writers, working together to promote literature and defend the freedom to write”) and Dyslexia Action.
In other news, Warwick Davis
talks about his role as Professor Filius Flitwick.
