Rowling contributed a signed book plate for a special Deluxe edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which also features a new sketch of Harry Potter by artist Mary Grandpre which you can see here. Motivated by a desire to do some good in his locale community, high school aged fan Daniel Ortiz is holding this auction which is set to go live soon, and we will update once that is available.
