From the Huffington Post:
Potter Nerds, get thee prepared. JK Rowling (Mama Potter in case you’ve lived under a rock for the past fifteen years), has scheduled a reading and book signing in anticipation of her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy.
The event will be her one and only in-person appearance in the U.S.
The Harry Potter author will discuss The Casual Vacancy at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center on Oct. 16. The venue can seat about 1,100 people.
Little, Brown and Company announced last week that Rowling will be interviewed on stage by fellow author Ann Patchett and will take “select” audience questions. Rowling also will sign copies of her new book for each audience member. Booksellers will have access to a live web cast.
Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, starting Sept. 10. Prices range from $44 for phone purchases, $43 for online and $37 at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office.
