Tea Parties - How About One With JK Rowling?

Tea Party

To celebrate the release of her latest book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, famed author JK Rowling invited approximately 200 school children to enjoy tea with her. What an exciting experience!

Read more about this at my One Book Two Book blog. This book is a spin-off of sorts from the latest Harry Potter book, Deathly Hallows.

I wonder what they had for tea and refreshments. Possibly something with a Scottish influence since this was to take place in Edinburgh.

I can imagine the excitement of the children who have been selected to attend the tea. (I think they had to submit an essay or something similar.) I think back on my afternoon of tea with children's author, Tasha Tudor. Even though I was a young adult, I was thrilled to have this opportunity to visit her and chat beside her country fireplace about books and writing.

Wow! What a special memory for those lucky kids. I bet they'll be avid readers for life.

I can't think of much I would have liked more when I was a kid. Since it's JK Rowlings, I might *still* like it!
