Bolingbrook Barnes & Noble holding Harry Potter book party July 30
The Barnes & Noble at Bolingbrook’s Promenade, 631 E Boughton Rd., will look more like Diagon Alley on Saturday, July 30, with a countdown party to the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two.
Wizards, witches and muggles are invited to join in the fun which starts at 8 p.m. and leads to the midnight release of the eighth Potter story which is based on the script for the play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Events for the night will include:
• Two customers will be announced as the winners of a set of 7 Harry Potter limited edition Barnes & Noble exclusive cover prints
• A special Muggle wall be available for customers to share their favorite memories of Harry Potter
• And several other amazing giveaways.
The celebration will continue through to the next day when customers are invited back to the store to share their thoughts on the new book and to participate in additional fun wizarding activities.
More Potter-centric fun will continue into the fall season as Barnes & Noble commemorates the release of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: The Illustrated Edition in October and the highly anticipated J.K. Rowling-scripted movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which arrives in theaters in November.
