J.K. Rowling is known for being pretty awesome, especially when it comes to social media. The famed author is very interactive and outspoken with her fans on Twitter. She gives them more insight into Harry Potter since it has ended; she reaches out to depressed fans, and even speaks out about Donald Trump, comparing him to Voldemort.

Well, if you needed proof Rowling is awesome in real life too, here you go.


When a library in Scotland tweeted out to Rowling’s secondary pen name, they never expected to get a response back from her…and so much more.

Orkney Library in Scotland tweeted out that they would be holding a book club for The Cuckoo’s Calling, a book Rowling wrote under the pen name, Robert Galbraith. Along with the discussion, they announced that they would be serving some sweet treats just in case Rowling was to stop by.

The event caught Rowling’s eye on Twitter and she replied back to their tweet telling them it sounded “like a fun event.”

Rowling toyed around with the idea of making an appearance, joking with the Scottish library on Twitter.

She even made a joke referencing the whole alter ego, playing Galbraith off as an entirety different person.

However, when Orkney Library pulled out the big guns and said there would be cake, Rowling seemed pretty sold on the trip.

And it turns out Rowling stuck to her word. She actually showed up at the book club for the discussion joining a bunch of locals to talk about her book.

She even took a picture with the sorting hat Orkney Library has on display.

Because of Rowling’s appearance, the library got a huge new fan base.

However, they did realize one mistake after the visit…

However, Rowling didn’t seem to mind and approved of the tea!
