J.K. Rowling, AKA basically in control of everyone's imaginations for the past, um, how long? Ten years? Fifteen? Million? has a new book coming out, but this one is for adults: The Casual Vacancy comes out September 27th in Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and Germany.
August 28th is Women Read Comics in Public Day! One of these days this sort of thing is going to fall when I can legitimately take the day off work and sit on the steps of the library all day, surrounded by Young Avengers and Captain Marvel.
