The Leaky Cauldron (via The Letter Box)
Harry Potter author JK Rowling has responded to the box of letters sent by Ali Wilgus on behalf of hundreds of mostly older fans, in a project she organized last spring called The Letter Box.
Rowling's sincere thanks come months after receiving the package, which she says is mostly the fault of paying more attention to her newborn son David:
What can I say? Rarely do I receive such letters, and never before in one beautifully packaged collection...
I apologize most sincerely for the long wait for a response. You congratulated me on his birth - and no, he's not a Squib - but David is indeed the main reason that I am horrendously behind on my correspondence. Well - David and book 6 which (before the press start up again with the writer's block stories) is flowing like a mountain stream.
