An update to last week's J.K. Rowling news! JKR contributed a story postcard to non-profits England PEN and Dyslexia Action for a charity auction. The card, which raised £25,000 (nearly $50,000), features an 800-word vignette of teenaged Sirius Black and James Potter doing what they do best: managing mischief. Read this story and more by some of our other favorite authors -- including Lauren Child, Michael Rosen, and Neil Gaiman -- here. The postcards will be collected in a limited edition anthology with all proceeds donated to charity.
