Post J.K. Rowling to tour U.S. (UPDATED)

Do you live in Los Angeles, New Orleans or New York City? Well, J.K. Rowling will be coming to your town this fall! The "J.K. Rowling Book Tour" will make four stops in the U.S. this October, three of which are only open to schoolchildren.

Scholastic will run a contest to win tickets starting July 30 on their website and in September they will select the winning schools that will get to send students whose names are pulled out of a Sorting Hat.

At the events, Jo will sign books, answer questions and do a reading from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Below are the dates and locations for the four events.

Monday, Oct. 15 – Los Angeles Kodak Theater
Thursday, Oct. 18 – Ernest N. Morial Auditorian at the Convention Center in New Orleans
Friday, Oct. 19 – New York’s Carnegie Hall
Friday, Oct. 19 – New York’s Carnegie Hall (7 p.m., open to adults)
Source: MSNBC

UPDATE: Here's some more information on the New York event that is open to adults as well as children, according to Jo’s website:

One thousand readers will be selected in a sweepstakes and will receive a pair of tickets to the event at Carnegie Hall on Friday, October 19, at 7 p.m.

Aww man! Why won't she come here? *cries*
I gotta go back to the muggle world,
they're gonna
try and tell me this wasn't, that none of this happened,
but you know what? It
was real. It did happen.
We spent time here. We made
friends here. That's a part of us.
Hogwarts is bigger than any of us, of any of it's founders,
and it's going to be around long after we're gone.
Maybe we'll see our
kids come here one day.
That's the thing about
No matter
how long you're away from it, there's always a way back.
