Send an Owl: A New Harry Potter Book is on the Way

There’s going to be a “Harry Potter” play in London this July called “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”. It’s a sequel set 19 years after the last book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”.

Yesterday J. K. Rowling announced she’s releasing the play in book-form under the name “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts 1 & 2”.  It’ll hit stores on July 31st, which is Harry Potter’s birthday in the books.

She talked about the story a few months ago.  Quote, “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.”

I prefer the names “Harry Potter and the Midlife Crisis” or “Harry Potter and the Receding Hairline”, but this new book title is alright…I guess.
