“Harry Potter” Out Loud

In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book’s publication, Falvey Memorial Library will hold a marathon reading of every Potter book, read out loud, from cover-to-cover from 12 noon to 12 midnight Wednesdays in the first floor library lounge.

Raffle tickets for prizes! A costume contest with prizes! Refreshments and more prizes!

This semester-long event is a unique and fun opportunity to introduce new readers to the series and reunite our students with the characters that sparked their interest in reading. It is also a perfect opportunity for faculty members to introduce their students to both Falvey Memorial Library and the surprisingly deep philosophical and social themes of Rowling’s influential series.

This event is open to all members of the Villanova University community and their families.

Special events details:

-Raffle tickets will be given to every person who reads and every person who comes in full costume (robes, etc.) to each reading night.  The raffle drawing for a Kindle pre-loaded with all seven Harry Potter books will be held on December 5.

– A costume contest with prizes will be held on Halloween. The grand prize for the costume contest will be an iPod Shuffle.

– Refreshments and small prizes will be awarded each reading night.

Mark your calendars:

September: 12, 19, 26

October: 3, 24, 31

November: 7, 14, 28

December: 5
