A Hero for America’s Youth

Posted on February 2nd, 2007 in Uncategorized by Karl

I just read in Fast Company (www.fastcompany.com) that JK Rowling is publishing her last book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, to be release in July 2007. 

Every parent and teacher in the US owes JK Rowling a standing ovation for the tremendously positive impact she has had on America’s youth.  In this age where our youth often turn to violent video games, internet porn, alcohol or drugs for entertainment, Rowling’s Harry Potter series has made reading “cool” for many children.  In our neighborhood, there have been several Harry Potter parties where kids gather around a fire and read to each other.

JK Rowling deserves tremendous accolades for engaging America’s youth with her  fantastic stories.  Thank you JK Rowling!!!
