July looks to be a busy month for Harry Potter fans! Here are a few exciting events for both children and adults:
Book #7 Paperback Release: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a breathtaking finish to a remarkable series. The final chapter to Harry Potter’s adventures will be released in paperback July 7th, 2009! It all comes down to this - a final face off between good and evil. You plan to pull out all the stops, but every time you solve one mystery, three more evolve. I've heard that many kids plan to re-read the whole Harry Potter series this summer.
Movie Release: The Warner Brothers Pictures movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince arrives in theaters July 15th.
Museum Exhibit: Visiting Chicago this summer? Don't miss the world premiere of Harry Potter: The Exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. According to the press release you can view key movie artifacts like Professor Snape’s™ original costume; Sybill Trelawney’s crystal ball; artifacts from the Yule Ball, including costumes from notable characters such as Harry, Ron, Hermione and Professor Dumbledore™; and life-size centaurs, a caged dragon, Buckbeak and giant Acromantula. In addition, guests will have the opportunity to pull a Mandrake from its pot in the Herbology vignette, toss a Quaffle in the Quidditch area, and tour Hagrid’s hut. The exhibit is at the Museum of Science and Industry from April 30, 2009 to September 27, 2009.
