Some 1,600 New Orleans students will meet author J.K. Rowling when the "Harry Potter" author visits the city next month. The third- through 12th-graders -- 20 from each of the 80 Orleans Parish public schools, including charter schools -- will be selected to attend Rowling's reading Oct. 18 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Rowling will read from the final book in the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," accept a few questions, and sign a copy for each student in attendance.
