Raincoast Books and Bloomsbury Plc announced today an online contest open to Canadian fans age 8-18 to win a trip to London to attend the J.K. Rowling and the Moonlight Signing event.
Seventeen-hundred fans will have the opportunity to meet J.K. Rowling and have their book signed at the Natural History Museum, including the lucky Canadian winner and their parent or legal guardian. The first 500 fans will be randomly selected to attend the midnight reading. The subsequent signing is expected to last until dawn. Every ticket holder will receive a free book from Bloomsbury Publishing.
Ten years after the publication of 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone', the launch of the final book in the series, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows', returns to where it all began: with a book, the author and her readers.
The Canadian online contest begins at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time, May 24, 2007 and will close at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on July 2, 2007. To enter and for full contest details please go to: http://www.raincoast.com/harrypotter/index.html
