This week marked the 20th anniversary of the original UK release of J.K. Rowling’s first Harry Potter novel.
A library or bookstore in your town will likely be celebrating the release…
The book is the script of a new play that has already been playing in London. J.K. Rowling has pleaded with theatre-goers to stay mum about what they have seen, but impatient readers can find details with minimal searching. We will honor Rowling’s request, and urge you instead to check out these official videos about the play while you are waiting for the release.
“The most important thing is to read as much as you can, like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing and it will enlarge your vocabulary.”
– J.K. Rowling
