The Harry Potter Book Night is an annual event where bookstores and libraries celebrate all things Potter. The thrilling theme this year is Fantastic Beasts, the original cornucopia of mythical creatures, which sit at the very heart of the Harry Potter stories. There is a digital signup sheet if a library or school wants to host their own shindig and an interactive map that shows exactly what is happening near you.
This Harry Potter Book Night is a worldwide event, but one school in the United Kingdom will win a ‘Professor of Potter’ Book Festival event, themed around Fantastic Beasts, plus a menagerie of books for their school library consisting of: The Hogwarts Library box set, the Illustrated Edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and a hardback box set of the Harry Potter series. Seven runners-up will also receive a copy of The Hogwarts Library box set and an Illustrated Edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
