Scottish library promises JK Rowling a slice of cake - and she actually turns up

If you’ve ever wondered how to get JK Rowling along to a discussion about The Cuckcoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (her pseudonym) we might well have the answer…

It all came about after Orkney Library tweeted about their book club.

And it caught JK Rowling’s eye…

Amazingly, she discussed apparating to join them.

Tbh, there was quite a long Twitter convo between them (jel)…they discussed her (and Robert’s) favourite type of cake.

Of course, we don’t think anyone actually thought she’d turn up.

But she did. Honestly – there’s pictures to prove it.

The Sorting Hat was even involved.

The library’s gained some fans.

But there were regrets afterwards…

Anyway, now we’re all just waiting for the same to happen to us … where’s the nearest book club?!
