J. K. Rowling announced Wednesday that she’ll donate the royalties from The Cuckoo’s Calling, the mystery that she wrote under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, to charity for three years, starting from July 14 — the day she was outed as the book’s author. The charity is the Army Benevolent Fund. In addition, Rowling sued the London law firm that was responsible for giving her secret away (a partner there told his wife’s best friend, who spilled the news on Twitter) and that firm has agreed to make a “substantial donation” to the same charity and pay Rowling’s legal fees.
If you are/were a fan of the book ‘Three Cups of Tea’ by Greg Mortenson, it would seem you have been duped, especially if you donated to Mortenson’s charity. Read all about the scandal via the links below.
