After writing one of the world's most successful literary series in Harry Potter, author J.K. Rowling was ready to move on—which she did under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith in "The Cuckoo's Calling."

The book garnered good reviews and sold well by the standards of most authors—but then, Rowling is not your typical author. Since the launch of the Harry Potter series in 1997, more than 450 millions copies have been sold—when movies and merchandising are added in, estimates of the value of the brand exceed $15 billion.

Have you read "The Cuckoo's Calling"? If so, stop by the library at 7 p.m. tonight to join in the discussion.
