J.K. Rowling could add another Harry Potter book to the series
Early in 2007, J.K. Rowling published her final installment in the Harry Potter series. Since then, Rowling has had a busy schedule. Straying from her typical children’s genre, she directed her focus towards publishing her first adult book, The Casual Vacancy. Rowling also has dedicated much of her time towards helping start a charity, ‘Lumos.’
Lumos helps children living in orphanages due to poverty or ethnicity to be reunited with their families. The organization is named after the ‘Lumos’ spell in Harry Potter. The name has two meanings, the first of which has to do with bringing these situations into the light for people to see. The other stands for bringing hope and light to the lives of the children living in these institutions.
“The shocking truth is that the vast majority of these children have parents that could care for them. They are not orphans. Most are placed in institutions by families who are too poor to provide for them, or because of a lack of local education and health facilities, especially for children with special needs. The minority who do not have parents, or for whom staying at home is not in their best interests, are often placed in institutions because there is no alternative.” -J.K. Rowling

Along with demonstrating great generosity towards this charity and others, Rowling has been kept occupied with writing the script of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
In an interview on Today with Matt Lauer, J.K. Rowling left room for hope of an addition to the Harry Potter series. When asked if she would ever write another, she responded with, “I have always said never say never.”
“I’ve always said I’m not going to say ‘I definitely won’t’ because — because I don’t see why I should say that. You know, it’s my world and I might choose to step back into it.” -J.K. Rowling
Though she neither confirmed or denied the possibility of her writing another book, fans of the book can still hope for the best.
