Did you know that JK Rowling was very poor when she wrote the first Harry Potter book in Edinburgh? She wrote at the Elephant House coffee shop each day (long hand) because a cup of coffee cost less than the heating bill.

JK Rowling borrowed names from graveyard stones that she looked out upon in a local cemetery while writing.

There have been 8 books, 8 Harry Potter movies, tons of clothing with the Harry Potter emblems, and a theme park. JK Rowling is now wealthier than the queen of England.

Universal recreated Hogwarts Castle and the divine wand choosing experience. The MISOGI of turning books into movies into experiences for all.

Harry Potter World at Universal Studio Los Angeles gets the 2017 MISOGI of Entertainment Experiences award.

The first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was published in 1997. Six more best-selling books and eight blockbuster films followed. The books are available in 79 languages, have won multiple awards, and sold more than 450 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling book series in history.
