J.K. Rowling in Talks with Whoopi Goldberg for Lumos

Lumos Foundation USA held a special fundraising event in New York City on 22 and 23 September 2018 where J.K. Rowling talked to actress Whoopi Goldberg.

Lumos Foundation USA was delighted to welcome more than 350 guests to a special fundraising event held in New York City on 22 and 23 September 2018. The highlight of Saturday’s gala dinner was a conversation between Lumos Founder and President J.K. Rowling and Emmy, Oscar and Tony-award winning star Whoopi Goldberg. During the conversation, J.K. Rowling described the trauma faced by the millions of children around the world who are separated from their families and the importance of raising awareness of the 8 million children trapped in orphanages.

“There is a vast humanitarian crisis that affects children overwhelmingly, which most of us are totally unaware of,” J.K.Rowling said. They went on to discuss how Lumos works to reunite families and help some of the most disadvantaged children around the world, highlighting the organisation’s progress in ending the harmful institutionalisation of children. They were later joined on stage by Lumos CEO Georgette Mulheir, who praised the generosity of Americans but called on them not to donate to or volunteer at orphanages, and to redirect funds instead to support networks in the local community to help families stay together. Rounding out the night was a preview of an upcoming HBO documentary on the issue, due to premiere in late 2019, and a special musical performance by Jamie Parker, star of the Tony-Award winning play on Broadway, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, accompanied on piano by the most prolific and honoured female theatrical composer in history, Jeanine Tesori.

The gala weekend continued on the Sunday when guests were treated to a benefit performance of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two at the Lyric Theatre on Broadway, with a surprise introduction by J.K. Rowling. Delighted fans in the audience heard our Founder and President talk about the importance of family, how this is a central theme of the play, and the inspiration behind her founding Lumos – the story of a young boy, trapped in an institution in the Czech Republic, whose image she first saw in a newspaper in 2004.

Today, October 02, actress Miranda Richardson, best known as Rita Skeeter to us Potterheads, and her co-star David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) attended Amazon’s London TV Showcase in London to promote their latest project, Amazon Prime Video show Good Omens.

Neil Gaiman, author of the book, announced earlier this year he’d be teaming up with the BBC to bring the book to TV.

“Almost 30 years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated by angels and demons, not to mention an 11-year-old Antichrist,” Gaiman commented.”It became many people’s favourite book. Three decades later, it’s going to make it to the screen. I can’t think of anyone we’d rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry were alive to see it.”

Joining Miranda and David in the cast are Michael Sheen, Sam Taylor Buck, Daniel May, Jon Hamm and Sian Brooke. The show is directed by Douglas Mackinnon.

Emma Watson Attending Burning Man

Emma Watson, our beloved actress who portrayed Hermione Granger, was among the 70,000 people attending this year’s Burning Man event. Emma looked to be in wonderful spirits as she posed for a photo while also enjoying the festivities.

For those of you who don’t know about the Burning Man: It’s an annual pilgrimage, where a temporary city erects in the Black Rock Desert of northwest Nevada, approximately 100 miles (160 km) north-northeast of Reno. The late summer event is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by ten main principles: “radical” inclusion, self-reliance, and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy, and leaving no trace”.

Burning Man isn’t your usual festival. It’s a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.

Currently, Emma is gearing up to begin work on Greta Gerwig’s new film Little Women. Emma is set to join Saorise Ronan, Laura Dern, and Meryl Streep in the upcoming retelling of the classic book.
