It’s always a good time to re-read J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter book series, and now you can do it as part of Pottermore’s official Wizarding World Book Club.
Each of the seven books will be covered, with special discussion topics from Pottermore. The club kicks off with “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” (aka “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”), which was first published in the UK 20 years ago. Readers can engage in weekly Twitter discussions with the Wizarding World Book Club account each Friday at 11AM ET starting June 23.
The discussion themes for the first five weeks are below:
Week 1: Welcome to the Wizarding World Book Club: How did you discover the Harry Potter stories?
Week 2: Magic and the Muggle World: Is the wizarding world as well-hidden as it likes to believe? Why are the Dursleys so afraid of magic?
Week 3: First Impressions: What are Harry and Draco’s similarities? What first makes Harry believe he is a wizard?
Week 4: Education: Is rebellion a good or bad thing at Hogwarts? Who learns the most from the troll in the dungeon incident?
Week 5: Friendship: Which friend has shown Harry the most loyalty so far? Do you agree with Hermione’s belief that friendship and bravery are more important than books and cleverness?
After the first book is wrapped up, the remaining six books will be discussed in order and special content will be added on the Pottermore site for each story.
