Thank You for the gift you have given the world. Harry and his friends first came into our lives one Christmas. My parents gave my family the first three books as a gift and our adventure in your world began. My daughters have grown up with Harry, Ron and Hermione and the books have helped them learn to love reading.
They went to see the first part of the final movie on Friday night with a group of girls every bit as enamored by your stories as they are. Hubby and I took the youngest on Sunday. The books and the movies are part of our child raising experience. Your world is part of our family memory.
I don't think, when you held that very first book in your hand, you had any idea of how important these characters would become.
Game changer. Not just for you....but for all of us too. So, thank you. Thank you for writing them and thank you for not listening to all the 'No' answers from those first few publishers.
Books can change the world. Yours have.
