J.K. Rowling Sends Harry Potter Books To 7-Year-Old Fan In War-Torn Syria

J.K. Rowling provided some welcome respite for a seven-year-old Harry Potter fan living in Aleppo, Syria.

Bana Alabed, who has been tweeting updates about her life in the the war-torn city, recently saw a Harry Potter film. Her mother later contacted the author saying her daughter would like to read the book, but it’s not available where they live. The family’s home is in the rebel-held eastern part of the city that’s been at the center of the nation’s violent, years-long conflict.
