NEW YORK (AP) – Harry Potter fans can look forward to a Halloween treat, with some tricks, from J.K. Rowling.
In an announcement posted Friday on her website, http://www.pottermore.com , the author revealed that she has prepared a 1,700 word story about the witch and former Hogwarts professor Dolores Umbridge. The story will appear on Halloween, Oct. 31, on her site. It will include Rowling’s “revealing first-person thoughts” about Umbridge, according to Friday’s announcement.
Umbridge first appeared in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” the fifth of seven books in Rowling’s multimillion-selling series. Imelda Staunton played her in the film adaptations of the Potter books.
