Final Harry Potter Published This Day

hp covers
On this day seven years ago, July 21, 2007, the seventh and final installment of the Harry Potter series was published. I still remember reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows through the night and then feeling a sad weight in my stomach as I closed the back cover on Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the magical world they inhabited. O! The finality of it all!

Imagine my surprise when, a couple weeks ago, J.K. Rowling posted a new short story about Harry and the gang on the Pottermore website, shocking and elating millions of readers and eventually causing the site to crash. Haven’t read the story yet? You can read an excerpt here.

The story is sparking speculation that a new book or movie could be in the works. What do you think? Will we see a new book or movie? Do you want to see a new book or movie?

Live Chat with the Author of “Weekends with Daisy”

CaptureThursday, April 24, at 1 pm

Do you have a question for the author or thoughts on the book you would like to share?
Join us for a lively discussion of this year’s Buena Park Reads Together selection, “Weekends with Daisy” and a live phone chat with the author, Sharon Kahn Luttrell!

Weekends with Daisy
by Sharron Kahn Luttrell

“A deceptively simple but powerful   account of family bonds, friendship, and the special relationship we have with dogs.” —Kirkus Reviews

After the death of her own beloved dog, journalist Sharron Luttrell decided to volunteer for the NEADS Prison PUP program, acting as a weekend trainer and foster parent for Daisy, a yellow Labrador puppy.

During the week, Daisy spent her days in prison, living and training with an   inmate named Keith who, like the other inmates in the program, sought         rehabilitation through training dogs to be service animals for the disabled.

Luttrell could never have anticipated how her weekends with Daisy and her unlikely bond with the man who shared Daisy’s training would change her life.
