Canadian winner of the Raincoast Harry Potter Launch Weekend Sweepstakes Eun Ji An, has written up a report of her winning trip. Eun Ji joined 70 other cub reporters representing newspapers and organizations from around the world. Eun Ji describes what it was like to see JK Rowling, the games played while waiting for the press conference to start, what Edinburgh looks like at first glance and the decorations at both events.
Eun Ji on meeting JK Rowling:
We were called up row by row to receive our copy of the book. She shook our hands and told us that we’ll meet again someday and gave us our books. Some people asked her for a hug, but I was too shy to do that. I heard some people say later that they were going to sell the book on ebay after a few years and I was horrified. J. K. Rowling left and we were called to our coaches and met up with our parents. I was in coach #1 along with everyone else in the same hotel. There were about twenty of us. I wouldn’t let my mother touch my book and I read the book as soon as I got back.
