NATIONAL BOOK STORE LAUNCHES J.K. ROWLING’S THE CASUAL VACANCY
The long wait is finally over! One of the most anticipated book releases of the year, J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy, will be launched in the Philippines on September 27 at exactly 3 pm by National Book Store.
J.K. Rowling is the author of the biggest selling young adult series of all-time, Harry Potter, which have sold over 450 million copies worldwide. The Harry Potter books have also been adapted into eight blockbuster movies.
The Casual Vacancy is Rowling’s first book in five years and is her first book aimed at an adult readership. It tells the story of the little town of Pagford, which is left in shock after the death of Barry Fairbrother. Pagford, seemingly an English idyll, is a town at war. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council triggers the biggest war the town has yet seen.
