July 31 has become famously known as Harry Potter’s birthday, a date selected by his creator because it, too, is author J.K. Rowling’s birthday. And we’ve busy been celebrating her 52nd here at EW.
We owe a lot to the woman who created the world of Harry Potter. Throughout countless books, movies, spin-offs, and Olivier Award-winning plays, Rowling was always more than willing to bring us into the Wizarding World. In fact, there are even three new Harry Potter books being published this fall.
