Wizarding World Book Club Launches Today

It’s finally here!

The Wizarding World Book Club, a Pottermore book club specifically made for Harry Potter Books launched this Monday. This is exciting opportunity for Harry Potter lovers because it gives them a chance to discuss their love for Harry Potter with other fans.

The club’s first reading is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (U.S. title: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) which is fitting since this is all in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first book’s publication. Discussions for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone will last for five weeks on the Pottermore website and Fridays on Twitter.

And to make it more interesting, they will be weekly discussions, discussions that will have various themes such as:

  • Magic and the Muggle World” (“Is the wizarding world as well-hidden as it likes to believe?”)
  • Friendship” (“Do you agree with Hermione’s belief that friendship and bravery are more important than books and cleverness?”).

Joining the book club is free to join and members will get first access to selected articles, video and other exclusive content.
