Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

Wednesday, July 29, 2015, 7 p.m.

Birthdays have a special significance in the world J.K. Rowling has created. Hagrid doesn't reveal that Harry is a wizard on just any day of the year, and every witch and wizard looks forward coming of age on their 17th birthday if for no other reason than that they are finally allowed to do magic outside school. Join us for a conversation about the significance of birthdays, especially Harry's, in the wizarding world. Birthday cake and butterbeer will be served!
