A statement by JK Rowling following the death of Dick Robinson, CEO and president of Scholastic


I learned the news of Dick Robinson’s death with shock and deep sadness. Dick was a wise, kind and humane man who leaves behind him an extraordinary legacy in the world of children’s literature. He was one of the first Harry Potter champions and a strong support for me during the twenty-four years we have known each other. My thoughts go out to everyone at Scholastic, who I know will be shaken by this unexpected news, and especially to Dick’s family, to whom my deepest condolences go. I am just one of thousands of children’s authors proud to have been published by Dick Robinson, and I will really miss him very much.
