Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been named by the magazine "TIME for Kids" as their Person of the Year. Readers of this children's magazine selected our favorite author for this award over others such as Lance Armstrong, disaster relief volunteers, and even the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Congratulations Jo! Thanks to MuggleNet for the link!
In a related note, we had told you previously that JKR was also reportedly in the running for the main Time Magazine "Person of the Year" award. The results are now out, and while Jo did not win, the award went to musical great Bono, as well as Bill and Melinda Gates, for their humanitarian and charity work involving the fight to eradicate global poverty and against HIV/AIDS.
