Magic for Muggles: A Harry Potter Experience will take place at Ferrum College in Ferrum, Va., on Nov. 1, 2003.
Speakers include some contributors to Lana Whited's book The Ivory Tower and Harry Potter, including Dr. Whited. The conference will feature three tracks: pre-Hogwarts (under 11), Hogwarts (11-18), and Hogwarts alumni (over 18).
The group sponsoring this event held a gathering earlier in June:
On June 12, 2003, the Harry Potter conference committee invited a group of young Harry Potter experts to help plan the conference. The group met for discussion, activities, refreshments, and a show-and-tell of Harry Potter "stuff."
