Samuel Ray Delany On Harry Potter Movies

We just chatted with author Samuel Ray Delany, Jr. who is one of the judges here at the National Book Awards. He wouldn’t give away any of tonight’s winners but he did tell us that he is excited about the new Harry Potter movie coming out this weekend.

Delany said, “It should be lots of fun. I have enjoyed them all and I expect to enjoy this one too.”

We asked him if he thought eBooks would be the next step for author J.K. Rowling and he said, “I don’t think she needs them.”

This might be true, but we’d like to see them anyway.
