EOD: 20-Year-Old “New J.K. Rowling” Gets Book Deal
6:00 pm, May 6th | by Laura Donovan
EOD Sunday Edition: You didn’t think you’d become the “new J.K. Rowling,” did you? Because that title apparently goes to 20-year-old Oxford student, Samantha Shannon, who has landed a book deal with the people behind “Harry Potter” for her futuristic adventures series. In other news, Kanye West dislikes fashion sense of New Yorkers, “Saturday Night Live” underwhelms with its “Tan Mom” skit, Etsy has some cute, inspirational graduation cards, and one woman explains how starting a business with her best buddy destroyed their relationship. Didn’t see THAT coming!
