Event description

Description

This year is the 20th anniversary of a publishing phenomenon: the publication of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 1997 began a literary, social and cultural rollercoaster with the books, films and a HP “industry” still showing no signs of receding into the past. But what are the historical parallels in the Harry Potter books? From Chaucer and the War of the Roses to the Second World War, real historical events weave through the books and add to their magic.

Daragh will speak about the narrative of magic in the Harry Potter books while “superfan” and children’s writer Dave Rudden will uncover the history references in the novels
