Launch of Harry Potter Play a Magical Event at Books and Company

Saturday, July 30, 2016 @ 7:55 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Books and Company in Prince George is  planning what it  says will be “a wickedly awesome evening”.

Tonight ,  from 10 pm to 1 am,  Books and Company will be hosting a special event for the midnight release of  Harry Potter scripts for  parts I and II of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” play.

Books and Company’s Kayli VanderMeer says  Harry  Potter’s broad appeal  has much to do  with the  world created by  author J. K. Rowling  “It’s such a  well developed world.  It’s such a global phenomenon that you can   just  throw a  stone and hit a Harry Potter fan.  So many people know about it,  it feels like it’s a real thing.  I think it was developed as such an inclusive world, there is a place for everybody in that world, it’s a nice little escape.”

She says that while  the first Harry Potter book was viewed as  reading for  youth,   as the series progressed, readers of all ages became enchanted.

The enchantment  continues tonight with costumes,  floating candles,  a photo  booth, costume contest, tea leaf reading, and a wand maker.   VanderMeer says  while the  evening will be magical, she’s hoping the only thing that will disappear is the book.
