Harry Potter Exhibit in the Works

rowlingDid I call it or did I call it? J.K. Rowling et al keep finding ways to make Harry Potter relevant. According to Entertainment Weekly, a new Harry Potter exhibit will open next year at the British Library.

The exhibit will commemorate the 20th — can you believe it?? Yes, I said 20TH! — anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the first book of the Harry Potter series (aka Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the U.S.). The exhibit will include things from J.K. Rowling’s archives and other goodies from British publisher Bloomsbury. The exhibit will be open October 20, 2017 until February 28, 2018.

All of this comes with the news that the latest addition to Harry Potter‘s universe, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, has sold more than three million copies.

‘Gone Girl’ Author Gillian Flynn Pens Comic

Screen shot 2014-04-29 at 10.36.22 PMThe bestselling author of Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn, is taking a stab at comics. Exciting, yes, but don’t worry; it doesn’t appear to be a permanent career change.

According to The Guardian, Flynn collaborated with graphic artist Dave Gibbons to create a comic that will be on display in the British Library’s upcoming exhibition of British comics. Gibbons is the artist who drew Alan Moore’s Watchmen comic series. Apparently, she’s one of many authors to pair up with comic artists for this exhibition. The comic Flynn and Gibbons worked on together, entitled ‘Mask,’ shows “what happens when parents turn vigilante.”
