Blog, News and Happenings

Have you heard about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?  It's a play about Harry as an adult.  It was always difficult being Harry Potter, and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.  The play will debut in London on July 30, 2016.  The bound script will go on sale to the public on July 31.  It's pretty big news in the world of Harry Potter.  But I have even BIGGER news.  The Hoover Public Library will be hosting a Harry Potter Birthday Bash on Sunday, July 31, 2016 at 4 p.m.  Yes, it is a celebration of his new book, but it is also in honor of both Harry's birthday and his first book.  Our party will take you back to Harry's first year entering Hogwarts.  Get ready to reminisce as you visit Ollivander's Wand Shop, Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions, Flourish & Blotts Bookseller, Gringotts Bank, The Magical Menagerie, and more!  Many of your favorite characters -- like Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Hagrid -- will be helping you have fun and eat cake.  And, of course, you are welcome to dress up too!  You do not have to register for this event.  Simply follow the stars to receive your official Hogwarts letter and begin your wizarding journey.

DON'T FORGET!
If you'd like to check out the new book on the day it comes out, you'll need to add your name to the waiting list.  We are buying lots of copies, but lots of people want to read it.  So don't delay!

Have you celebrated National Hot Dog Month yet?  Well, get on it!  These books are a good place to start.  And, before you ask . . . yes.  Of course hot dogs can be historic!  Here's the proof.

J  641.3  SYL
Garnished with hilarious illustrations and amazing "food" facts, this kid-friendly, globe spanning history of our favorite fast-food meal offers unique insight into America's multicultural heritage. From a hobo's franks-and-beans to astronaut food, there's more to the wiener--and what's for dinner--than you think.

Hot Dog!: Eleanor Roosevelt Throws a Picnic by Leslie Kimmelman (2014)
E  920  ROO
