February 5th 2015 will see the first ever Harry Potter Book Night. This exciting event will give new and existing fans a chance to share the wonder of J.K. Rowling’s unforgettable stories and, most excitingly, to introduce the next generation of readers to the unparalleled magic of Harry Potter. You are hereby invited to embrace the magic and banish the midwinter blues!
Bloomsbury Children’s Books is inviting schools, bookshops, libraries and community groups to host early-evening events in celebration of Harry Potter Book Night. Bloomsbury is creating a complete Harry Potter Book Night Kit – available for free download – offering hosts everything they need to plan an unforgettable evening. The kit will include invitation templates, an event poster, games, activities and quizzes as well as ideas for dressing up and decorating the venue. The kit will be available from the new website harrypotterbooknight.com. Event hosts can register now at the site to receive the kit and updates in the run up to the big night.
Sarah Stuffins, FCBG Chair, said ‘It’s so exciting to hear about Harry Potter Book Night. Our FCBG children have been huge fans from the very beginning, with “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” winning the Red House Children’s Book Award in the year it was published. Together with the beautiful new Jonny Duddle book jackets the stories are now being reimagined for a new generation of children and we’re very much looking forward to celebrating the magic together on 5th February’
