Call her Doctor Rowling

It's not the first time J.K. Rowling has received an honorary degree.

In fact, three other universities have given the creator of Harry Potter honorary degrees for her contribution to literature. However, Aberdeen University in Scotland recently awarded her an honorary doctorate for a different reason--for her contribution to multiple scerlosis research. It's a disease her mother died from in 1990 and Rowling has supported research and worked to raise money for the cause.

Speaking of children's authors, there are several upcoming releases that fans of the genre can eagerly anticipate. Such authors as Meg Cabot, Ursula LeGuin, and Gail Carson Levine all have books coming out soon. For that matter, so does Jamie Lee Curtis and Kate McMullen.
