Chapter 141:11
Laws of the Megillah

11. The person who reads the Megillah, both during the day [of Purim] and at night, should recite the following three blessings before beginning: "Al Mikra Megillah," "She'asah nissim" and "She'hecheyanu."

After the conclusion of the reading, the reader rolls up the Megillah scroll, leaves it in front of him, and then recites the blessing, "Harav es riveinu." If the reader of the Megillah is a mourner, another person should recite the blessings, because [it is not appropriate for the mourner to recite the] "She'hecheyanu" blessing [publicly] (1).
