Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education and media company, recently announced a live webcast with worldwide bestselling author J.K. Rowling and the launch of the Harry Potter Book Club, an online destination created to share the magical world of Harry Potter with a generation of new readers.
Harry Potter Reading Club
The new Harry Potter Reading Club from Scholastic can be accessed at www.scholastic.com/hpreadingclub
As huge Potterheads (we loved our visit to the London Harry Potter Studio) we were so excited to find out more about the world of Harry Potter including Pottermore, an exciting, free online experience that offers Harry Potter fans the chance to explore and discover exclusive new writing by J.K. Rowling as well as immerse themselves in other interactive content and community activities.
More Harry Potter is Better
The new Harry Potter Reading Club website provides educators, librarians, after school program coordinators and parents who want to organize a book club with access to all the tools they need to host a Harry Potter Reading Club and celebrate the joy of reading. The first 10,000 registrants for the Club will receive a welcome kit including bookmarks, stickers and nametags. Printable versions of these items will also be available for download from the website.

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe

Also, the Harry Potter Reading Club website includes a comprehensive discussion guide for each of the seven Harry Potter novels. The guides provide questions to help club members start an insightful conversation about the themes and events in the books and, in certain instances, how the books may relate to readers' own lives and the world today. Each month Scholastic will add new themed activities to complement the Reading Club discussions that will often relate to experiences on the Pottermore website.
The Harry Potter Reading Club will also feature a live feed at Twitter #hpREADS providing a community for club leaders as well as 'Teacher Tips'? from educators already running Harry Potter Reading Clubs. The site will also include a series overview, a glossary of terms and a pronunciation guide as well as information about author J.K. Rowling and illustrator Mary Grand. Harry Potter Reading Club members can also expect invitations to additional special events and contests.
