Local Fans Say Happy Birthday To Harry Potter

Posted at 10:35 PM, Jul 31, 2016

It was a big day for fans of the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

Not only was Sunday the fictional character’s birthday, but the newest book in the series has been released onto store shelves.

The Brentwood Library formed a chapter of The Harry Potter Alliance called The Chamber of Knowledge for muggles and wizards ages 6-106 in 2015.

The Chamber of Knowledge hosted a quidditch match Sunday in honor of Potter.

For many Harry Potter fans, the books have been magical in many ways as they weave the story into their lives, which one fan said helps build the community and give a magic spark.

The chapter's current campaign has focused on the best environmental practices.

Sunday was also the birthday of the author of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling.

The newest book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, was not written as a novel. It’s the script of a stage production of the same name currently running in London.
