JKR to read in New York with John Irving and Stephen King

On the nights of the 1st and 2nd August 2006 I will be reading at Radio City Hall in New York, alongside John Irving and Stephen King, in "AN EVENING WITH HARRY, CARRIE AND GARP".

All proceeds from the event will go to The Haven Foundation (an organization that helps performing artists whose accidents or illnesses have left them uninsured and unable to work) and Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (an international independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters, or exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries).

Tickets ranging from $12.50 to $100 will be available through Ticketmaster from May 12, 2006 at 10 a.m (which is 3 p.m. in the UK).

Telephone numbers:

212-307-7171 (New York City)
212-307-1000 (MSG/RCMH hotline)
201-507-8900 (NJ)
845-454-3388 (Westchester)
631-888-9000 (Long Island)
203-368-1000 (Connecticut)
(Limit 8 tickets per purchase)

Pairs of prime orchestra seats will also be available via a Ticketmaster auction online. A limited number of “Family Packages” which will include 4 premium orchestra seats and a set of three signed books – one from each author – will also be on sale at that time for $1,000. Anyone who purchases a ticket will have the opportunity to submit a question for the authors via email.

This is the first reading I've done in America since 2000, so I'm looking forward to it very much and hope to see some regular jkrowling.com visitors there!
