Early reports of New Orleans visit

Here are links to the first reports of Rowling's visit to New Orleans:

The Times-Picayune article is the most complete. New canon:

  • The first piece of literature that inspired Jo was The Wind in the Willows.
  • Rowling wanted the books to show some of the evils of war: how "totally innocent people are slaughtered" and "that children lose their families."
  • Cho Chang married a Muggle.
  • Snape teaches Potions because Jo didn't do well in Chemistry and wanted revenge.
