J.K. Rowling and Santiago


Staff member
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
I recieved this from the Spanish publisher of the Harry Potter books today:

Estimados Sres.,

Les escribo de parte de los representantes de J. K. Rowling, autora de los
libros de Harry Potter, quienes han recibido la noticia publicada en su
diario de que su representada participará en una conferencia sobre la paz
en Santiago en 2005. Por favor tomen nota de que la señora Rowling no tiene
previsto asistir y hagan la corrección pertinente.

Gracias y un saludo cordial,

This confusion has created quite a stir on the http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org discussion board. Take a look here:
