Mayor Mel Lastman [Toronto\'s chief Muggle] gave J.K. Rowling the key to the city yesterday, and when she spoke at a fundaraiser for the Osborne Collection of the Toronto Library, she admitted she\'s just terrified about the big event. Part of the International Festival of Authors is a reading by Rowling at the Sky Dome, Never Been?(it\'s quite a place, worth the trip, wherever you are). Her biggest audience in the past was 2,000 in Germany, the Sky Dome holds 36,000. Did you know her friends call her Jo?
``The reading is a way to reach a lot of children. But I\'m plainly not a rock star, not the Rolling Stones.\'\'
