Dear readers: Friday, October 21 will find more than a few Hogwarts Professors rubbing elbows, sharing insights and in-universe jokes which would be embarrassing in any other context at the Chestnut Hill College’s Harry Potter Conference. The conference is in its 5th year, and this year’s lineup looks amazing.
The conference will feature lectures by John Granger, Loris Vezzali, Jack Gierzynski, and shorter talks by Potter scholars from all over the country (including Louise and me!), not to mention book signings and even a live Mugglenet Academia recording interviewing Lorrie Kim, author of the new book Snape: A Definitive Reading.
I’ll be live Tweeting the event, so follow me (@ekcstrand) and the event #ChestnutHillHPConf2016 if you can’t be there but wish you could.
