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.
Sign up today!
Next month will be the 20th anniversary of the debut of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s (Sorcerer’s) Stone and we were introduced to the magical world of Harry Potter (I can’t believe I was just 10 years old when it first came out). So to celebrate this momentous occasion, Pottermore is launching a book club. Yes, your read correctly, a book club for the Harry Potter series!
Whether you are new to the series or have read the books a thousand times, this Wizarding World Book Club provides a great opportunity to discuss the books in the series that we all know and love. You can join in the conversation by visiting the Pottermore website or following it on Twitter.
