Harry Potter
9/26/2007 —

More than 8.3 million copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows were sold within the first 24 hours of its release. With all the hype centered on this famous wizard, the Penn State Bookstore invites you to participate in a fun Harry Potter reading group at the Wilkes-Barre campus. The magic of Harry Potter has touched a huge audience of all ages all over the world. Now, it’s your chance to jump aboard the Hogwarts Express and go inside the mind of J.K. Rowling, creator and author of this famous character.

According to Linda Major, bookstore manager at Penn State, “With the excitement that’s been generated from all the Harry Potter books and movies, we felt that there was a demand from the local community to put together a reading group that discusses the characters and writing style of J.K. Rowling.” Major, who developed the program, says, “Joanne Rowling or J.K. Rowling will make you laugh and cry all at the same time. She’s a brilliant writer.” Her latest book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,is available and on sale at the Wilkes-Barre campus bookstore.

The next Harry Potter reading session is scheduled for 7pm on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in Hayfield House room 105. All Potter fans ages 16 and up are encouraged to attend. Admission is free to Penn State students, faculty, and the public.
