JK Rowlings The BILLION dollar Harry Potter creator says, she knows for sure that love is the most powerful thing of all. Rowling tears up thinking of 9/11 and the many who phoned their loved ones before they passed that day. 9/11 was the day when she knew love was the most powerful. This is her first interview with Oprah, which took place in Scotland. Oprah also asks the goddess of all things Harry Potter, what is your dream of happiness? The reply is “I’m pretty close.”

We have a lot of things in common says Oprah.


On the show they show a clip of Ms. Rowling’s Harvard commencement speech from 2008. If you have a some time to spare it is worth watching!


I found this interview to one of the best this season and I admit to never reading any of the Potter books. I found the conversation delightful and intelligent.  Thank you Oprah and JK Rowling!
