J.K. Rowling's Boots

Lot # 1      

Pair of boots worn by J.K. Rowling when she wrote the first book of the Harry Potter series--"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone."

In the fall of 1999, the fifth grade class at Harrison Elementary School, located in Omaha, NE, conducted a project called "Operation Shoe Tree." This project was developed for students to reach out to local celebrities and inquire about their daily lives, from the perspective of the celebrity's shoes. Emily Waldo, a student in the class, wrote an interview letter to J.K. Rowling, asking to interview her shoes. The original letter is attached with J.K's hand-written response and signature. Several weeks later a package arrived at Emily's school with the interview letter, a personal letter from Fiddy Henderson, J.K. Rowling's personal assistant, and a pair of boots. The boots, the subject of the interview and as described in the letter, were the boots J.K. Rowling wore when she wrote several chapters of the first Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" (published in the U.S. as "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"). This book, and the many to follow, were all adapted into major motion pictures, entertaining and inspiring millions of people around the world.
