Harry Potter

Twenty years ago on June 26, a boy with a lightning bolt scar introduced us to the world of Hogwarts and magic. J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” hit U.K. bookshelves in 1997, followed by a release in the United States one year later. In honor of the anniversary, we want to hear from you about your love for the series, the movies and the franchise. Did you attend midnight book releases and movie premieres, own Harry Potter memorabilia, or visit Universal Orlando’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter or the actual studios outside London? If you’re a fan, submit your stories and pictures to Staff Writer Nicole Leonard at nleonard@pressofac.com or call 609-272-7022.
