Happy Birthday, Harry Potter! Hogwarts School is Open!

Happy Birthday, Harry Potter! To celebrate the birthday of one of our favorite wizards, The King's English Bookshop will magically transform into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This year, Hogwarts will present three classes for Salt Lake's wizards and witches: Wandmaking, Remembralls and Dueling Wizards.*

Author Devri Wells will be signing her new YA fantasy book, The Venators: Promises Forged, throughout the day! 

There are free Harry Potter-themed activities to enjoy all day so dress in costume and visit the bookshop anytime! Complete our Scavenger Hunt and meet our own Monster Book of Monsters! Send a letter at the Owl Post, pose in a Azkaban Wanted Poster pic, and have your fortune told by our Fortune Teller.

10:30 a.m. Hogwarts Classes Track One (by enrollment*)

11 a.m. Storytime led by Madam Hooch

11:45 a.m. Hogwarts Harry Potter Costume Contest
