Petition to save Harry Potter

Jul 10 2007

British bookstore chain Waterstone's is attempting to gather a million signatures. The petition reads, "We, the undersigned, petition J.K. Rowling to write more new adventures for Harry Potter and his friends no matter what happens at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

In an interview on BBC television's Friday Night with Jonathan Ross show, J.K. Rowling left the door open to the possibility she may revisit Harry and Hogwarts in book form. "I think that Harry's story comes to quite a clear end in book seven," she told Ross. “But I have always said that I wouldn't say never. I can't say I will never write another book about that world, just because I think: 'What do I know—in 10 years' time I might want to return to it.' But I think it is unlikely."

Rowling has already noted that she plans to write at least one encyclopedia about all the Hogwarts characters, places, spells and creatures, probably for charity.
