  JK Potter 5 reading for lucky 4,000
Updated 01 May 2003, 17.24
Countdown to the Order of the Phoenix
Just when you thought nothing could top the launch of the biggest book of the year, Newsround can exclusively tell you JK Rowling plans to read from her latest book.

Author JK Rowling

In front of over 4,000 school children the world's richest author will read extracts from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 26 June.

Hang on there's more

It's the only appareance she'll be making for the book's release which is out on 21 June.

Probably the biggest news of all is that those children have not yet been picked, so it could be YOU who gets to go!

Stephen Fry, the audio book's narrator will be speaking on stage to JK and there'll be a chance for children to ask questions too.

Not free

Bloomsbury, the book's publishers are organising the event and they want schools to apply.

There is going to be a 5 charge per person, although Bloomsbury promise they're not trying to make any money, they just want to cover the cost.

The application form is on Bloomsbury's website, and the closing date is 16 May, so you don't have long.

But remember: ONLY schools can apply; you can't do it yourself! The winning schools will be picked at random from all the applications.
