At a stonemason’s workshop in Morningside today, J. K. Rowling’s handprints were set in stone. Her handprints, which could symbolically convey the vast mark she has left on literature, will be set on display outside the Edinburgh City Chambers to honor her for all the effort she has put into writing Harry Potter.

I am both proud and overjoyed to find out today that Jo Rowling has awarded Harry Potter Fan Zone a fan site award on her official website. Of the site, Jo says:
How could I not love a fansite whose contributors include people named Thaddeus and Aunna? This is a great Australian site with an impressively young staff who have produced some really insightful editorials; I wish I could highlight a couple of them, but that would be waaaay too revealing. If you head over to FAQs, however, you will see some of the open letter questions answered (at long last, yes, I know… but I had to finish “Deathly Hallows” first). So congratulations and thanks, Andy, to you and all your talented colleagues.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Jo – this means the world to all of us here at HPFZ.

J.K. Rowling has taken the time to answer some of the questions from the open letter we wrote last year!
Ms. Rowling answered questions about Draco’s Patronus, Tonks and Myrtle’s Hogwarts houses, Death Eaters (Are Alecto and Amycus, the two sibling Death Eaters, the Carrows mentioned by Snape in Spinner’s End?), Tom Riddle’s birth date (it is indeed December 31), and the properties of Draco’s wand.
