On March 24th, Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling, responded amazingly to a fan who tweeted who couldn’t deal with the fact that she told fans that Hogwarts headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, was in fact gay. in 2007, Rowling admitted that Dumbledore was gay during a Q&A, when a fan asked if he had ever loved someone. The fan, who tweeted Rowling saying that she just couldn’t see Dumbledore ‘that way,’ had the response from Rowling as ‘Maybe because gay people look just like…people.’ Her response is one of the many reasons why fans worship her!

As I’ve mentioned in a previous Bookworm News post, Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments book series was getting a reboot as a television show. ABC Family has given the series a straight-to-series order, which will be called Shadowhunters. The drama series is being hoped for a 13 episode first season, with no start date set and casting to be called shortly. Filming is slated to start in May in Toronto.
