"The event has brought together a family connected by a magical spell of witches and wizards", the Bookstore said in a statement. When it seems like we're stuck, we know that there is a part of the Harry Potter series that can help shine a light on our problems.

As it turns out, Jamie Parker, the actor who plays grown-up Harry Potter in the Tony-winning "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child", is 38 too (though he'll be 39 in August). The event also saw a theme-based quiz and awards for the best-dressed participants.
It looks like Harry Potter fans in NY will have plenty of opportunities to spend a lot of time at the New-York Historical Society in the last half of 2018. Overall, Rowling's wizarding series books have sold over 500 million copies worldwide, making it the most successful book series of all time, and have even been translated into as many as 65 languages over the years. We're sure Alia Bhatt would make for an unbelievable Hermoine, won't she?

Some of the best memes involved Harry flying into a birthday cupcake with his mouth wide open, Dumbledore and Snape dancing with the caption "everyday I'm Dumblin'" and gif of the epic "Harry Potter Puppet Pals" YouTube skit that aired 11 years ago.
So, how old is Harry Potter? You've got to make some sacrifices!
In a world with so much darkness and despair, who are we to judge?
To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2018, Scholastic has released a new run of all seven of the "Harry Potter" books, but with a clever twist.
