Fifteen years ago, a book about a very special boy who lived in a cupboard under the stairs entered the world. Not many people knew about it back then, but the boy wizard has grown from being a whisper to a cultural phenomenon. Yes, of course, we’re talking Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Try and imagine a world without Harry Potter: A world without young adult literature as we know it, without the film adaptations we adore, but perhaps most significantly, a world missing a very special kind of magic. Not only does 2012 celebrate fifteen years of Hogwarts and its students, but July 31st is Harry Potter’s birthday. To observe this rather momentous occasion, Lauren and I are very excited to bring you Potterthon: A month long celebration of all things Harry Potter. We’ll be bringing you themed posts, character debates, interactive exams and polls, and some very exciting giveaways. Read on to find out what's coming up!
