Potions Lecture Tomorrow, Thursday, September 3rd, 7:30 pm

The opening reception was a blast! Thank you to everyone who showed up. If you couldn’t make it, there are still Hogwarts acceptance letters (including our full schedule of events) available at the Scholes front desk, and you can come see the exhibit anytime.

You can also come to our first lecture tomorrow! Dr. John D’Angelo will be speaking on the topic of “What If Magic Were Real?” From his talk description:

With rare exceptions (like polyjuice potion), potions with the capabilities of those in Harry Potter exist in real life. Other forms of “magic,” such as summoning spells, the Imperius Curse, and even flying are not 100% fiction. Together, we will journey through some descriptions and explanations of some of the “magic” that surrounds us daily, and which we rarely notice.

The talk will be held at 7:30 in the upstairs classroom; library workers at the circulation desk will be happy to direct you if you’re not sure where to find it.

Come begin your Hogwarts education!
