CLCs Harry Potter Night

Feb 6, 2023 2:17 PM


The evening of February 4, 2023 marked our 8th annual Harry Potter Book Night. This year’s event was sponsored by the Children’s Literature Centre, Lewis J. Ort Library, the University Lane Center, the Theater Department, and Chartwell’s. Harry Potter Book Night is Bloomsbury Publishing’s annual global celebration of J.K. Rowling’s famed series. An estimated 400 children and adults attended the event this year. This was a free in-person event for families to experience the world of Harry Potter. Children attended multiple classes, based upon their assigned Hogwarts’s House, adventured in Diagonal Alley where they shopped for supplies, sampled Bertie Bott’s Every Flavored Beans, entered the costume contest, met other wizards, won prizes, competed for the house cup, and developed their wizarding skills. The CLC staff looks forward to seeing all wizards next year on Feb. 3, 2024!
