   Scholastic celebrates with a MuggleMob0 Comments

More than 300 Harry Potter fans formed a massive flash mob or "Muggle Mob" yesterday, taking over Broadway in front of the Scholastic headquarters building in New York City.

The "mob" happened just 10 days before the release of the eighth Harry Potter story, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two.


  Accio Quote:
“Scholastic introduced Harry Potter to readers of all ages nearly 20 years ago. What better way to celebrate the release of the eighth story and start the countdown to the biggest publishing event of the summer than to gather a flash mob of dedicated Harry Potter fans eager to share their love of books and reading,” said Ellie Berger, President, Scholastic Trade.

   Pottermore to release official Book Club0 Comments

Pottermore has announced that they are going to set up an official World Book Club to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The World Book Club will be free and is in association with Bloomsbury and Scholastic.


  Accio Quote:
The Wizarding World Book Club kicks off in June, and to take part you just need to read (or re-read) a Harry Potter book each month – or more, as the books get longer. You can then join in a conversation about it on Twitter, or simply check Pottermore to learn more about each story.

Whether you’re a newcomer, or have read the books a thousand times over, the Wizarding World Book Club is the place for everyone to join the discussion on each of the seven Harry Potter stories.

There will be many ways to participate too. Each week, a new theme from the Harry Potter stories will be discussed over on Pottermore’s brand new Wizarding World Book Club Twitter account, @WWBookClub.
