Notes

An notably early article by Rowling recounting her experiences reading Greek and Roman Studies at the University of Exeter, printed in the journal of the Department of Classics and Ancient History. In the article she comments that she had "the unforgettable experience of being lectured by a person best known simply as Z. It was Z I had in mind when I created Professor Binns, a minor character in the novel I published last year". Also included is a note of congratulations from the University "on the success of her marvellously imaginative children's novel Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone", noting that "four companies have been wooing Joanne for the film rights".
