Harry Potter Book Festival

Postby Prof. Amy Lupin » Sun Feb 05, 2017 10:30 am

On 2 February, the third annual Harry Potter Book Night was celebrated in various parts of the world. This was an initiative started by Bloomsbury in the hopes of encouraging a new generation to engage with the series. This years theme is "The Professors of Hogwarts".

We felt it would be appropriate to host something similar as part of the HOL Book Club. Over the course of the next two months we'll be celebrating the magic of the Harry Potter books through various tasks adapted from the activities Bloomsbury put together.

New tasks will be posted each week, and they will be due by the end of the week in which they are posted. Each task will be worth 10 beans.

Feel free to join in at any point!

Schedule
6 February: Week 1 tasks released (due by 12 February)
13 February: Week 2 tasks released (due by 19 February)
20 February: Week 3 tasks released (due by 26 February)
27 February: Week 4 tasks released (due by 5 March)
6 March: Week 5 tasks released (due by 12 March)
13 March: Week 6 tasks released (due by 19 March)
20 March: Week 7 tasks released (due by 26 March)
27 March: Week 8 tasks released (due by 2 April)

Folks who participate will get to enjoy scrubbing down the The Entrance Hall after a Bat Bogey Hex contest.
