|Barnes & Noble throws Midnight Magic Party to celebrate new Harry Potter book|
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is finally here, and you're invited to a party! The Barnes & Noble Bookstore is proud to celebrate the release of the final book in J.K. Rowlings beloved series about young wizard Harry Potter with a Midnight Magic Party from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, July 20.
Rowling' series of seven fantasy novels follows Harry Potter and his friends as they struggle against the evil of Lord Voldemort, an evil wizard who killed Harry' parents. The books have met with critical and commercial success worldwide, collectively selling more than 325 million copies. They have also been translated into 63 languages. After 10 years, the saga of Harry Potter will finally reach its conclusion with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The book, to be released on July 21, is scheduled to receiving a record-breaking print run of 12 million copies. This follows hard on the heels of the premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, fifth in the series of phenomenally successful film adaptations of the novels.
Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, July 20, for one night only, the Bookstore will be transfigured, becoming Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Guests will be able to enjoy a butterbeer or polyjuice potion in the Great Hall, make their own wand, read tea leaves with Professor Trelawney, or find the Golden Snitch. Fans of the series will enjoy being sorted by the Sorting Hat, taking a photo at Colin Creeveys photo booth, testing their knowledge in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, and leaving their favorite memories of the Harry Potter series in the Pensieve. Visit Moaning Myrtle, the Chamber of Secrets, and maybe even meet someone from the books!
The evening promises to be filled with fun and excitement as we count down the minutes to the witching hour. The final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will go on sale at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, July 21, bringing an end to both the Midnight Magic Party and Harry's adventures. Dont miss your chance to be part of this fun-filled event at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore.
