J.K. Rowling will join comedian Shazia Mirza and music producer Glyn Johns on the panel of a special extended edition of BBC Radio 4’s The Museum of Curiosity this Christmas.  The award-winning radio show, which is hosted by John Lloyd and features guest ‘curator’ Bridget Christie, asks three distinguished guests to donate fascinating exhibits to a vast imaginary Museum.

The programme will air on Monday 23rd December at 6.15pm GMT on BBC Radio 4, and is repeated over the Christmas period.

J.K. Rowling shares early memories of visiting Europe as a teenager and the lasting impression it made upon her, in a contribution to a new book: A Love Letter to Europe: An Outpouring of Love, Sadness and Hope.

The book features contributions from other writers, thinkers, artists and performers and is published by Coronet.
