  JK Rowling in Book Day Festival
Updated 28 November 2003, 16.59
JK Rowling
JK Rowling will take part in a special webchat in March 2004 to help launch the second World Book Day Online Festival.

The Harry Potter author will talk to children about her writing and what books she likes reading.

During the chat JK will also answer 12 special questions from winners of a Festival competition open to all schools in the UK.

She'll be joined for the Online Festival by other authors including Jamila Gavin.

It's all part of the seventh annual World Book Day which features lots of book related events.

Millions of 1 tokens will be given out at schools, which can be exchanged for specially produced books including Cool! By Michael Morpurgo and Artemis Fowl: The Seventh Dwarf by Eoin Colfer.

We'll have more details soon of how you can enter the festival's competition to chat online to JK, who is currently writing the sixth Harry Potter book.
