Edinburgh ehrt Rowling

J.K. Rowling ist jetzt schon die reichste Frau der Welt. Nun wird sie auch noch von ihrer Heimatstadt Edinburgh geehrt.

city councillors are discussing a more formal way to honour the bestselling, Edinburgh based writer, possibly by naming a street after her (an unusual event for a living person) and perhaps establishing a young writer’s competition in her name (which would be far more appropriate, I feel, especially since Rowling herself benefited from an award from the Scottish Arts Council which allowed her to complete writing that first book).
