Rather elaborate author reading

This is really, really cool.

"Immediately after midnight, at 00.01am on Saturday 16th July JK Rowling will read from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle. Her audience will be fifty aspiring cub reporters (aged 8-16) attending the Harry Potter Children's Press Conference Weekend on behalf of newspapers from around the world. The cub reporters will meet JK Rowling who will give them each a signed copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The cub reporters will then have the weekend to read the book in a specially-created Reading Room at Edinburgh Castle before attending the Children's Press Conference on Sunday 17th July to question JK Rowling about the new book."
