Time Europe Says J.K. Makes Storytelling Cool

"TIME looks back on 60 years of outstanding individuals, and celebrates their contribution to making the world a better place."

The European edition of TIME Magazine lists author J.K. Rowling amongst the most inspirational people of the past six decades, and writer Jumana Farouky had this to say about our favorite author:

"...Harry may have been born a wizard, but his journey through adolescence is purely human. For kids, he's a trusted companion during that awkward, angst-ridden adventure called growing up. For grown-ups, his escapades offer the chance to feel like a kid again. And that is J.K. Rowling's greatest trick: remembering the thrills, and fears, of being young..."

"...Harry and his friends invite readers into Hogwarts, but it's Rowling's writing that keeps them spellbound. Now she's working on the seventh book — the final one, she says — and fans can't wait to see how it all ends. In a time when everything comes to us in bits and bytes, Rowling has made storytelling cool again. And that is something truly magical."
