27 June 2017

Fans celebrated 20 years since the first Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" was published.  The event took place at Waterstones book store in London on Monday. The store sold about 100 hundred tickets to the event. HARRY POTTER FAN, JOSH EDWARDS    "What makes Harry Potter so special for me is really what it's done for my life. Harry Potter just started a lot of really good things for me to do with my education, my university and just what I wanted to do as a person, it really helped me become an actor and everything like that and I made some phenomenal friends because of it."    HARRY POTTER FAN, MAE WEBSTER     "It kind of amazes me that people have been enjoying it for so long. I just like love it so much, just thinking that it's twenty years old, I thought it was like new when I read it instead of twenty years old."
