Harry Potter Turns 10 — Next Tuesday!

Posted by at 12:40 pm in Harry Potter, News | Permalink

Last month, we told you all about Harry Potter Cover to Cover Day — a read-a-thon celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone! Well, the big day is LESS than a week away.

Planning it has been a blast. On Monday, the throne that J. K. Rowling sat in at Carnegie Hall arrived, and we added to the set we built in the front window at Scholastic headquarters in SoHo, NY.

We also shot this commercial with our friend, Sabira, who is mad about Harry (she’s sitting in the throne!).

All systems are “go” for the big event! So spread the word and tell every Muggle you know to join us next Tuesday, the 23rd, live in NYC or on the web starting at 8 a.m. ET.
