Now J.K. Rowling (54) into the debate! The first volume of her magical Harry Potter story appeared in 1997 – and even 13 years after the publication of the last book, fans are still discussing the magical adventure on the Internet. Some false information also appears to have been circulated: Now the writer spoke up and uncovered a common misconception!
“I was thinking of setting up an area on my website for all of Potter’s alleged inspiration and places of birth,” begins the successful author Twitter her answer to a fan who asked her about the importance of The Elephant House in Edinburgh. The café describes itself as the birthplace of “Harry Potter”. However, this information is incorrect, as J.K. now clarified: “I had been writing to Potter for several years before I set foot in this café for the first time. So it’s not the place of birth, but I wrote there, so I’ll let her get away with it! “
The author sent several explanations about the beginning of her writing process. For example, she remembered that she first picked up a pen in a London apartment to write the story about the magician. “If you define ‘place of birth’ by the place where I put the pen on paper for the first time, this is the real place of birth. […] The cornerstone for Hogwarts was laid in an apartment in Clapham Junction. ” J.K. Rowling Another place of origin could also be considered: “But if you define ‘place of birth’ by where I had the original idea, it was on a train from Manchester to London.”
