From the sgnewswire:
Occasionally, there are literary events that transcend any rock concert. On August 1st and 2nd, Radio City Music Hall will host readings from three authors: John Irving, Stephen King, and J.K. Rowling.

Stephen King writes:
I am excited to announce that on the evenings of August 1st and 2nd, I will be reading with the creators of Potter and Garp at Radio City Music Hall. This came about because two good people agreed with me that it might be possible to do one gigantic reading to benefit two charities.

One is Doctors Without Borders, an international independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters, or exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries, and the other is The Haven Foundation, a charity that supports writers and artists who can no longer support themselves because of accidents or illness.
First, if you live in or near New York: Fuck you.
I feel I must echo his sentiments...

[User Picture]Hey!

I was all excited, I was going to try to take my niece, who is also a huge HP fan, but I will be away on vacation that week, and thus, can't. *sniff*

[User Picture]Now I'm doubly disappointed. :(

I thought for sure I could get a report from you on the night.

Damn. I want to go to this. Instead we live here in a literature wasteland.
