Comics & Gaming Holds Harry Potter Release Celebration at Midnight

Harry-Potter-and-the-Cursed-ChildDie-hard Harry Potter fans can get their hands on the latest adventure in the Wizarding World, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One and Two,” near midnight Saturday at Comics & Gaming in Gainesville.

The novel, the rehearsal script of the stage play (premiering in London’s West End Theatre tonight), offers Harry Potter fans a glimpse into his adult life and the lives of his children.

The book is officially for sale Sunday, July 31, which is why we are having a midnight release party for it and selling copies at 12:01 am,” Store Manager Ed Alexander said.

The store also plans special events to commemorate the release, including a Hogwarts-inspired Sorting Hat ceremony at 11 p.m. and a costume contest at 11:30 p.m.

“I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, I’ve read all seven original books multiple times as well as the three ‘school books’ that J.K. Rowling published,” Alexander said. “And there’s no traditional bookstores in Gainesville, so it gives us an opportunity to do something like this for the community.”

The specialty store, located at 7556 Gardner Park Drive, will have the highly anticipated hardcover for sale for $29.99.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One and Two,” was written by Jack Thorne, J. K. Rowling (story) and John Tiffany.
