A quick reminder for those of you in the US: ABC will be airing James Runcie’s documentary “J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life” tonight, July 16, at 8:00 pm EST. Here’s how Runcie describes his documentary:
It’s an intimate, personal encounter, in which J.K. Rowling talks simply and honestly about her life and her writing. It was not made as a glitzy publicity film because I wasn’t very interested in making something anyone else could have done. Instead, the aim was to make something more quietly revealing, to discover what Rowling really thought, and to discuss some of the central themes of her work; childhood hopes and fears, loyalty and betrayal, chance and fate.
