In our video galleries, and embedded below, is a short wrapup of the conference and events at today's Beedle the Bard unveiling at the New York Public Library, featuring a very invested and enthusiastic Arthur Levine (co-editor of the HP books).
yea, same comment as Nimbus-X. For some reason I pictured Arthur A. Levin as a really short guy ;)
wow! i can’t wait to see the video tommorow… sooooo excited… I guess I know what i’m going to read during my break.
Already planning a trip to NY….. so excited!!!!
I was at the event this morning at the NYPL. Levine compared Rowling’s stories in Tales of Beedle the Bard to the stories of the Brothers Grimm and other fairy tale writers. I spoke to experts about it, comparing what Levine said about the Beedle tales to what experts say about fairy tales. I wrote about it here: http://blogs.journalism.cuny.edu/interactivefundamentals/2008/12/03/modern-day-fairytales/
Wow, that is amazing. I can wait to read it!!
I was at the event as well, in fact I was behind you in line for interviews with Arthur. :)
Here’s my article on the event:
I wonder what stones have been used for the original seven copies? We now know two of them, what about the other five?
Sooo cool, that book :)
So glad I got mine. I wish it looked like that, though. ahha.
Are they using that book in particular for DH?
Thanks, Matthew. Please don’t hesitate to post thoughts or opinions about my article at my blog, if you agree or disagree, etc.
