IT IS TRUE.Harry Potter and the Cursed Child cover
There's a New Harry Potter Book Coming
Mark your calendars for July 31, 2016.
It will be a “special rehearsal edition” of the script book of the stage play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II," which begins its run at London’s Palace Theatre July 30, 2016.

The play, written by Jack Thorne, is based on an original story by Rowling, Thorne, and John Tiffany, which catches up with Harry Potter 19 years after the epilogue in the final book of the Harry Potter series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." Now a husband, father of three, and an overworked employee at the Ministry of Magic, Harry must continually grapple with his past while his youngest son, Albus, struggles with a weighty and unwanted family legacy.

They have begun play previews in London. Here is a brief review of an early preview... and no, we still do not know who the "Cursed Child" is..... interesting...!


**NEW** July 5, 2016. J.K. Rowling brings magic to the theater with a new Harry Potter play. Short interview/review on PBS Newshour.

Also coming from the Harry Potter world:

  • The next illustrated volume, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, illustrated by Jim Kay will be in stores October 2016.
  • Licensed tie-ins to the Warner Bros. feature film adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (for which Rowling penned the screenplay), set for release in the U.S. and U.K. theaters on November 18, 2016.

Give us a call, or send us an email, if you would like us to get/hold a copy of any of these for you.
