The Oprah Winfrey Show Looking for Harry Potter Fans

The Oprah Show is searching for Harry Potter fans willing to appear on the programme to talk about how J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series has inspired them or their family. A short description on the application to appear on the show reads as follows:

Are you or your children obsessed with the Harry Potter series? Have you read all the books and seen all the movies multiple times? How has the series helped you bond with your children or parents? Has J.K.'s rags to riches journey as a single mother-turned-billionaire inspired you? Has her story motivated you to write, start your own business or try something you've only dreamed about before?
What life lessons has the Harry Potter series taught you? Did reading about the death of Harry's parents helped you cope with loss in your own life? Have the books helped you escape from a difficult time in your own life? If you could ask J.K. Rowling a question, what would it be?
Read the full description and write in to the programme at this link on the Oprah website. There is currently no indication of when this episode will air.

Many thanks to our friends at MuggleNet for the heads up!

If they want questions for Jo does that mean they’ll be having her on the show? Do you know what, I’ve thought for a while that if they are (or if anybody is going to interview her), Leaky should really interview her FIRST, because nobody has really asked her serious questions for a couple of years. And wouldn’t the best people to do that be people who are really, genuinely invested in the books themselves, rather than “oh what a lovely phenomenon this is it will make money”…?

I do like Oprah though, I’ll watch it whenever it airs. :)

@DanielBonnie28 — YES! I’d love to know the answer to that.

I’d like to know more about how Lupin spent the years between 3 and 7 — did he have Wolfsbane, how did the underground operations go, what exactly happened with Tonks… I don’t think I’m ever going to get my questions answered, lol.

Soooo upset. I wanted to send in my story so I worked really hard on it especially since they didn’t really have a deadline listed. By the time I went to send it it was too late.

@DanielBonnie28 I’d love to know the answer to that too. I have a feeling Ginny asked him, i don’t think she’s the type of girl to wait for him to ask.
