Exton’s Wellington Square Bookshop will celebrate the highly anticipated continuation of the Harry Potter series with a Midnight Release Party on July 30th from 10 p.m.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is a two part play script based on the short story written by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany. It is scheduled for release on July 31st one day after the play officially opens in London.
Set nineteen years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the play follows Harry Potter and his son Albus Severus Potter, as they struggle to deal with the famous wizard’s past.
The bookstore at 549 Wellington Square will celebrate the release of the eighth official installment with a Hogwarts Party. Customers are invited to come dressed as their favorite character for a night of Harry Potter inspired games, activities, and snacks.
Wellington Square Bookshop has successfully managed to withstand the pressure from larger bookshop chains and online sellers, something that is becoming increasingly difficult for many independent stores to overcome.
In April, Chester County Book Company in West Goshen Shopping Center announced it would be closing its doors after almost three and a half decades. Supporting small businesses by shopping locally is becoming crucially important in ensuring these independent community stores stay open.
Anyone who pre-orders the book from the Wellington Square Bookshop will receive a 20 percent discount and can get their copy at the stroke of midnight on July 30th. To reserve one, call the Bookshop on 610 458-1144.
