By the Book: Harry Potter and the Readers Who Loved Him

For a certain group of readers around the world, July 31 is an important date: the birthday of The Boy Who Lived. For the uninitiated, that’s Harry Potter, and yes, we are taking this opportunity to revisit and reminisce over our love for J.K. Rowling’s global phenomenon of a book series. Whether you loved it, hated it, or have yet to read it, join us as we discuss what made the series so significant, both to the literary world and to us personally. We wrap things up with a look at the recently revealed Man Booker longlist for 2019.
