Harry Potter Book Festival 2018

Post by Sky Alton » Sat Jan 27, 2018 6:33 pm

Announcing the Harry Potter Book Festival 2018!
Mr and Mrs Dursley, o nummer fower, Privet Loan, were prood tae say that they were gey normal, thank ye verra much.
-Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stane

This is the opening to a Scots translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that was released in 2017. The books have been translated into 68 languages to date and are available in over 200 territories around the world. But translation isn’t the only way we can share the joy of reading with as many people as possible.

Harry’s exploits have been made into (amongst other things) audio books, e-books, illustrated editions and braille books, as well as films and video games. This multitude of forms got us thinking. While for a lot of people experiencing the magic of the written word is as simple as taking a book off a shelf, what other ways are there to read?

To celebrate Harry Potter Book Night on February 1st, the Book Club invites you to come along as we explore the different methods people find to access the magic of a good story. The activity will last 3 weeks with 3 tasks being released for each one. You’ll be able to take part in discussions and games, as well as completing art and writing tasks where you can delve further into areas that catch your attention. You can also join in with our Monthly Book Discussion which focuses on ‘Fish in a Tree’, a fun, heart-warming read that tackles the subject of dyslexia.

Each regular weekly task is worth 10 house points, meaning there’s a total of 90 up for grabs. If you complete over half of these, you’ll scoop ‘The Harry Potter book Festival Atendee’ award.

Monday January 29th: Week 1 tasks released (due Sunday the 4th)
Monday 5th February: Week 2 tasks released (Due Sunday the 11th)
Monday 12th February: Week 3 Tasks released (Due Sunday the 18th)
