To commemorate, celebrate, and highlight the day, Ms. Rowling tells us in her newsletter that the answer to the question”What sort of book is Vacancy?” is “I love nineteenth century novels that focus on a town or village. This is my attempt to do a modern version.”
She’ll be talking with Mark Lawson tonight at London’s Southbank Centre, which conversation will be livestreamed at 7:30 pm on YouTube at www.youTube.com/southbankcentre. No, I don’t know if that 7:30 pm is Greenwich time or another.Let us know if you know!
Please share below, too, all your day of publication news! (Hat-tip to Katherine for the Newsletter information.)
