Transcript for Toronto press conference

AQ staff Meann and roonwit have created a transcript for the 10/22 press conference in Toronto. Jo had a microphone but the reporters asking the questions did not, so many of the questions were unintelligible. The video for it is here:

  • There wasn't a point at which Rowling decided that Dumbledore was gay; she gradually realized it "very early on" while she was writing the first book.
  • Rowling "probably" won't write a prequel.
  • JKR: "He [Dumbledore] is my character, and as my character I have the right to say what I say about him."
  • Most of the tweaking of the epilogue was to remove information; the biggest change was the addition of information about Teddy Lupin.
  • Rowling still plans on working on a Hogwarts encyclopedia, but not immediately.
  • Hermione would read Margaret Atwood's books; Harry and Ron don't read much as adults.
