A very talented artist and from the looks of it a very worthy school. I hope they manage to raise what they need.

Mary Grandpre did an incredible job in translating the content of the novels into visual art that complemented and defined the franchise here in the states. I hope that her speech is enjoyable for all who attend.

Her covers were wonderful. Even though California is nearby, I don’t have enough money to go on trips as often as I would like.

Actually, on the Russian editions of HP we have the same pictures, so I can say that for me Mary GrandPre’s work is an integral part of Harry Potter novels))) I wish I could attend this meeting)

I think that this is an amazing event, and I am personally a big fan of her artwork. I, myself, am an artist-in-training, and am in awe of her work.
