Hi, 
I was wondering when the media first realised that Harry Potter/ J.K. Rowling was a big success. Was it through a news article or was it through an interview with her? The earliest I found was December 1997 which is just 6 months after the publication of Philosopher's Stone and I was thinking there may have been more articles/interviews before. 
Thank You Rowling Library!

Hey Sivany,

The media realised that HP was a big success at the same time that the general public, because Harry Potter most powerful force what the "mouth to mouth" recommendation.

The first article/interview on Harry Potter / JK Rowling would be this one, featured on The Daily Telegraph, from July 1997.
