On July 31 …in the first minutes, across America boxes of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be opened. MIddleburg will be joining the celebration with a party hosted by Second Chapter Books, starting on the night of the 30th at 11:30pm and ending at 12:30am on the 31st, or when all the books are distributed. For those in attendance, there will be drawings for gifts, including a free copy of the book, and refreshments.

In this eighth book …” being Harry Potter isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”

For those not willing to party late at night, books can be reserved online or by calling the book store. If you can join us please let the bookstore know at: 540-687-8049 or secondchapterbks@gmail.com.
