Last month we told you about the Barnes & Noble's special event featuring Harry Potter U.S. narrator Jim Dale at one of their New York stores to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We now have the full details of the event, which will include bestselling children's authors and a live webcast of the event on the B&N website.
From the release:
The five hours of live entertainment will feature appearances, discussions, and signings by favorite Disney authors including:
Barnes & Noble will kick off the celebration of the seventh and final book in the J.K. Rowling series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, at 5PM. Radio Disney will emcee the celebration and entertain guests with games, prizes, and music. The event will also be webcast live on Barnes & Noble.com (www.bn.com/midnightmagic).
We have also learned that toy store Toys "R" Us will be hosting a special event at their flagship store in Times Square, on Friday, July 20. Festivities will start at 9 p.m. and include games, quizzes and prizes.
Come dressed as your favorite Harry Potter character, or be like Dobby and wear your most miss-matched, oddest socks for opportunities to win prizes. Test your Harry Potter knowledge at N.E.W.T. levels, see magic and wizardry, and enjoy other exciting activities. Plus, guests who purchase Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will receive a commemorative glow-in-the-dark poster only available at Toys "R" Us Times Square!
