Harry Potter is a name you’ve probably heard before. No, he’s not a 2020 democratic presidential candidate. He’s a boy wizard created by now-billionaire author J.K. Rowling. Rowling’s wizarding world became a global phenomenon more than two decades ago when the first book hit store shelves, in 1997. People of all ages lined up at midnight for subsequent book releases and movie screenings. More recently, families have saved their pennies to visit the Hogwarts castle at Universal Studios.
