igxcmx9ykj3gcgfap5hz.jpg

This week’s Westworld, “Kiksuya,” brought an oft-seen but mostly-silent supporting character into the spotlight, and used his incredible story to give us new perspective on the Hosts’ awareness. It was a poetic, and frankly rather refreshing, detour from the show’s main narrative.

J.K. Rowling sends super sweet reply to single parent who thanked her for ‘Harry Potter’

TwitterFacebook

The days may be a long way behind her now, but J.K. Rowling knows what it’s like to be poor.

She’s spoken about her former situation before in interviews. 

“I was as poor as it’s possible to be in this country,” she told the Daily Mail back in 2013. “I was a single parent.”

It’s perhaps not too surprising, then, that she clearly has a large amount of empathy for people going through something similar.

On Thursday, Matt Burke from Tallahassee, Florida, sent the following tweet to the Harry Potter author.

@jk_rowling I’m a single parent, broke as can be, and reading the Harry Potter series together has become one of the biggest sources of bonding for us
Doubt you’ll come across this or read this piece, but I just wanted to say thanks for the assist. 🙏🏻https://t.co/hkX0q5HSCX
