We love @harryandthepotters! They’ll be playing an after hours concert on 

Sunday | Feb 28 | 6-8pm | Auditorium | 100000% FREE

Grab your wands and wizarding robes for a magical, after hours show with Harry and the Potters. Muggles and magical folk are welcome to this absolutely free show. Draco and the Malfoys will be playing as well, so don’t miss this after hours wizardrock duel! Costumes are encouraged (even if you choose to dress as a muggle).

(Also as a Slytherin I have to say I’m equally excited that Draco and the Malfoys will also be playing.

A wonderfair/Harry and the Potters collaboration on a Hermione-themed mini golf hole for lawrencepubliclibrary‘s annual Caddy Stacks event. 

The theme this year was superheroes, so, duh, Hermione. Instead of using a golf club, you’re required to use a “book club” to play the hole.  

“When in doubt, go to the library.”

Thanks wizard rockers! Come play mini golf in the library all day today! 

Love my town!

How lovely, to be lost
as you are now
in someone else’s thoughts
an imagined world
of witchcraft, wizardry and clans
that takes you in so utterly
all the ceaseless background noise
of life’s insistent pull and drag soon fades
and you are left, a young boy
captured in attention’s undivided daze,
as I was once
when books defined a world
no trouble could yet penetrate
or others spoil, or regret stain,
when, between covers, under covers,
all is safe and sure
and each Odysseus makes it home again
and every transformation is to bird or bush
or to a star atwinkle in some firmament of light,
or to a club that lets you, and all others, in.
Oh, how I wish for you
that life may let you turn and turn
these pages, in whose spell
time is frozen, as is pain and fright and loss
before you’re destined to be lost again
in that disordered and distressing book
your life will write for you and cannot change.

You know there’s some crappy letter from Gringott’s in there, telling you about this awesome line of credit you can get, if only you don’t mind the insane interest. 

Don’t even get me started on the magazines I didn’t order but are still being delivered. I didn’t order Which Witch Weekly!

Hahaha
