J.K. Rowling to Release New Book Aimed At Adults

There’s essentially no information about the Harry Potter author’s next project: it’s untitled, has no publication date, and the announcement that she’d closed a deal to write it contains no information about the plot or characters or genre. But given Rowling’s long-standing opposition to torture and indefinite detention and support for the dignity of the poor and those who need public assistance—themes she explored extensively in the Harry Potter novels—it’d be wonderful to see her carry some of those same themes into her next work.
