Straight Out of Hogwarts!

Horton's Books & Gifts in Carrollton, GA, would fit gracefully in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The oldest bookstore in Georgia (established in 1892) with its wood floors providing an occasional creak, and the massive floor to ceiling bookshelves, will be hosting the "wizarding" community on Friday, July 20th. Feel free to come in your "wizardry" finest.


You'll need to arrive between 8:00PM and 9:00PM in order to be sorted into houses. Maps will be provided of participating locations such as Gringott's and the Shrieking Shack. Magical classes such as herbology, potions, and wand making will be given by your prefect. Points will be awarded (or deducted!) during the classes, and the House Cup will be awarded at 11:45.


Oh, and one more thing…Deputy Headmistress, Dorothy Pittman, has arranged for you to be able to purchase a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at the stroke of midnight.

Oh, that sounds like soooo much fun!!! Will people be dressing up?

I'm sure they will Takoda. Kids, Muggle and otherwise, are encouraged to dress, along with their parents. It's going to be really cool.

Thanks for stopping by!
