Event description

Description

Rowling is the most influential woman in Britain. She transports us with wonderful art and makes the world better. I want to extend the magic, celebrate and spread the gospel of Harry. A bible for the 21st century.

It's a privilege and delight to be able to do these tours, except when it's raining, sleeting, or snowing. Then it's a wet delight, frosty delight, white delight respectively.

The tours are going well, I'm treading water, doing something I enjoy and is perhaps helpful to some. In addition, if you're a writer, or studying literature, please tell me, because I have extra bits I can include which may be instructive.
