National Braille Press to sell set of autographed Harry Potter books at auction


The National Braille Press is auctioning a set of Harry Potter books autographed by author J.K. Rowling.

Rowling rarely signs books, and the copies being auctioned are the only known signed complete set in the United States.

A similar set sold recently in Scotland for $40,000 (28,178 EUR).

The seven-book set, donated by Rowling, is the only item that can be bid for online.

The fundraiser, emceed by TV talk-show host Jay Leno, is scheduled for Oct. 26.

The money raised will help the press produce Braille books for children.
