NewsTrack Review 3: ‘New “Harry Potter” Book, Script of Upcoming Play, Gets Summer Release Date’

As a huge Harry Potter fan myself, I was as interested to write about this article as I was to read it! The article is a light, fluff-piece on the huge pScreen Shot 2016-02-10 at 5.36.12 PMop culture phenomenon that is Harry Potter. To readers’ delight, it also included some fun multimedia aspects that made the article easy and fun to read through. The first element after the lead is an interview with the wonderful J.K. Rowling talking about the what more is to come from Harry Potter. This is followed by a series of tweets between Rowling and her fans. But, the most interesting and unique multimedia element I found in this article that made me initially want to review it, was the J.K. Rowling Timeline interactive infographic at the conclusion of the article (below). The graphic takes you through Rowling’s personal life, including her family members, marriages, and children along with when she wrote Harry Potter and signed to publishing houses in chronological order. As a huge Rowling buff, I was delighted to gain some more knowledge on the author that penned my favorite fiction books! Such a creative graphic that really enriched the entire article.
