J.K. Rowling was one of the guests at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, and while there she revealed that she might not be done with the Harry Potter series.
According to the Washington Post, Rowling told a group of kids that she's considering another story in the Potter universe, but if it happens it will be "maybe 10 years from now."
Rowling also said she's working on a non-Potter book.
"I'm quite sure in the not-too-distant future I will bring out another book."
I have my doubts that Rowling is planning another story about Harry Potter himself. After Half-Blood Prince, she seemed like she'd done everything she wanted to do with the character. But the Potter world is a large and colorful place, and there are still a lot of potential stories to tell about other characters. (It would be sort of cheesy if she started a new series about the kids of Harry and company, as they go through their own adventures at Hogwarts. That being said, I'd still read it eagerly!)
