– Tomie dePaolaReading is important, because if you can read, you can learn anything about everything and everything about anything.
We’ve reached the end of another HPBF and our journey through the many ways people access the magic of stories. Lots of amazing work has been done and some enlightening discussions had (and of course, some points and awards earned). Thank you to everyone who contributed something, be it a few thoughts in a discussion or everything on offer! Thanks also to my fellow Book Club staffers who helped me make this idea a reality.
I’ll hopefully be awarding points later today but in the meantime, would just like to give a quick shout out to all those people who completed over half the tasks and earned themselves a shiny Harry Potter Book Festival Attendee award for their trophy cabinet:
Whatever you earned, I hope you’ve enjoyed your time at the Festival. Even if you’re not going away with a brand new way of reading to try (and why not?), it’s been a pleasure to learn about them alongside you.
