(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling will be coming to the U.S. this fall to promote her first novel for adults.
Rowling will discuss "The Casual Vacancy" at New York's Jazz at Lincoln Center on Oct. 16. The venue can seat about 1,100 people.
Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, starting Sept. 10. Prices range from $44 for phone purchases, $43 for online and $37 at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office.
Little, Brown and Company announced Wednesday that Rowling will be interviewed on stage by fellow author Ann Patchett and will take "select" audience questions. Rowling also will sign copies of her new book for each audience member. Booksellers will have access to a live webcast.
Described by the publisher as a black comedy, the novel follows events in the fictional English countryside village of Pagford after a member of the parish council dies and must be replaced in an election.
The book will be published simultaneously in the U.S. and U.K. on Sept. 27.
