J.K Rowling has reached out to families confined to their homes during the coronavirus pandemic by launching an online initiative that features quizzes, games and other activities.
The website is called www.harrypotterathome.com
For the entire month of April, Rowling has collaborated with audio publisher-distributor Audible and library e-book supplier OverDrive for free audio and digital editions of the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
“The teachers, parents and carers working to keep children’s lives as normal and happy as possible while we’re all on lockdown deserve a bit of magic,” Rowling said in a statement Wednesday.
“I hope these initiatives will give children and even adults a happy distraction during their enforced stay-at-home time.”
