Calling all Harry Potter fans!
J.K. Rowling—the author behind the story of The Boy Who Lived—is releasing four new books through Pottermore Publishing.
Each of the e-books will center around the lessons Harry, Ron, and Hermione had to take while attending Hogwarts. The non-fiction stories will teach readers about “the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories,” according to a press release.
The titles, which will all be published this summer, are:
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures
“It seems part of human nature to want to believe in the unbelievable: from the bestiaries and cabinets of curiosities of the medieval period onwards,” the statement reads. “We think that truth and myth are easily distinguished today, but magical creatures and the stories around them continue to fascinate us—and they are as central to the Harry Potter stories as Harry, Hermione and Ron.”
The four e-books will also include manuscript pages, notes, and sketches from Rowling’s time writing the original Harry Potter books. Pottermore describes them as “a chance to absorb the colourful characters and curious incidents of the real history of magic in a more compact form.”
We’ll be first in line to purchase these magical books. Until then, excuse us while we re-read the originals.
