Today’s Obligatory Harry Potter Roundup

With the publication date of HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS less than a month away, expect the volume of stories to increase (even if the quality, or significance, may not correlate.) Today we have a few choice morsels including:

    • Scholastic will host a “Harry Potter Place” starting July 20. [release]
    • Kim Brown, vice president of merchandising for Barnes & Noble, and Kris Nugent, manager of Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Il. reveal their Harry Potter strategies. [Chicago Daily Herald]
    • Motoko Rich goes to the Harry Potter fan sites for their thoughts on spoilers, predictions and other Potter-related items. [NYT]
    • Potter-mania extends to the Ukraine, too. [Kyiv Post]
