Tonight’s the night- muggles and wizards alike await the midnight release of J.K. Rowling’s final installment in her acclaimed Harry Potter series: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Will Harry die? Is Snape really evil? Hardcore fans will know the answers by this time tomorrow.
The earliest you can get a book is midnight at Black Bear Books- but if
you haven’t preordered, you may be out of luck. Come enjoy the
festivities anyway, however. Black Bear Books will be open all day- but
the real party is expected to begin around 9:30 tonight. Waldenbooks in
the Boone Mall will have books on sale starting at 7 a.m. tomorrow, and
features a party of its own.
Lucky muggles may be able to obtain copies at Wal-mart- but the advice is the same- come early.
Release parties encourage you to dress up as your favorite character
and mingle with the wizards. Don’t forget your wands, and happy reading.
