Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

A great story from Black Press about our midnight party!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


The midnight hour is almost here! It has been nine long years since we have been able to look forward to the release of a new Harry Potter story but thankfully that wait is almost over. July 31 marks the release of the Special Rehearsal Edition of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. If you have ever been to one of our Harry Potter release parties you are aware that we know how to host a book launch, if you haven’t you are in for a treat!

We have to wait until 12:01 on the 31st to start handing out the books so for those that will be joining us we have some great entertainment lined up beginning around 11:00pm on Saturday the 30th. Be here to see some outstanding magic, meet members of the Valkyries Quidditch Team and because Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a script we will be joined by members of Paper Street Theatre who will be ready to improv scene that you think may take place in the book. It promises to be a fun night.

For those that are somehow able to hold off until daylight hours Sunday the 31st will be a day of celebration at Bolen Books. Being Harry Potter’s (and J.K. Rowling’s) birthday it is only fitting that we have cake but also be on the lookout for Harry Potter themed contests and give aways as well as a store wide sale!

If you are planning to attend the midnight release you can pre-purchase your copy of the book now at our front desk. So dust off your wands and hop on your Nimbus 2000 and join us once again in the world of Harry Potter.

Stay Tuned

We have big news to announce about a major fall author event.

Details are coming soon.

Can you handle the suspense?
