I will jealously keep up to date with the event via twitter dreaming of JK signing my copy of The Casual Vacancy but for all of you lucky attendees it sounds like these measures guarantee everybody a moment with the Queen of Potter herself. Too bad she won’t sign other items! I’m sure many people were planning on getting their Potter books signed.
