Harry Potter & the Cursed Child Midnight Release Celebration
Midnight Book Release
12:01 AM until 12:30 AM
At Bolen Books at Hillside Centre
JOIN US FOR A VERY SPECIAL MIDNIGHT RELEASE CELEBRATION
THE EIGHTH STORY. NINETEEN YEARS LATER.
On July 21st, 2007, we pulled out all the stops to celebrate the release of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, opening our doors at midnight so that eager fans could be among the first to get their hands on their own copy of the final book in the Harry Potter saga. As that evening wound to a close, we believed it would be the last such Harry Potter release celebration we'd hold.
We were wrong.
Nine years after the release of the final novel in the series, Harry Potter & the Cursed Child - a stage play based on an all-new original story by J K Rowling - is coning to our shelves as a special, rehearsal edition script. This new story, set nineteen years after Deathly Hallows, marks the first new major content in the Harry Potter universe in almost a decade.
If you, like thousands of other eager Harry Potter fans, can't wait to see this new story, then you can join right here at Bolen Books on JULY 31ST at 12:01 AM to get your copy the minute it's on sale. There'll be entertainment while you wait, and then, when the clock strikes 12:01 AM, the eighth story can finally be yours.
THE DETAILS! When? July 31st at 12:01 AM (Yes, you can line up early. In fact, we encourage it). Where? The front doors of Bolen Books at Hillside Centre. How? Very soon, we'll be pre-selling copies of Harry Potter & the Cursed Child. You can pay in advance, come in at midnight on the 31st, and pick up your books. Pre-sale details to come.
See in store for further details.
The Magic is Back on July 31st.
