The latest Winner
Harry Potter fan Katie MacDonald will hear the latest adventures of Harry Potter straight from the lips of his creator after winning an Evening News competition.
JK Rowling's special midnight reading is to be the highlight of a magical two days at Edinburgh Castle - which will be transformed into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - that Katie will attend.
Katie, nine, from Rankin Drive, Newington, was thrilled to have won the competition, which involved proving her knowledge of Harry and the Hogwarts gang by answering five questions.
"I am really looking forward to meeting JK Rowling and being at Edinburgh Castle," said Katie.
"My favourite character is Hermione because she's very stubborn and brainy and good at spells."
Katie said the competition was hard, but Debbie encouraged her to enter and she spent ages looking up all the answers in the books and on the internet.
