Lello Bookshop -®Porto Convention & Visitors Bureau
"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I & II" will have its world launch in Porto, more accurately at Livraria Lello, a bookshop which inspired the author of the saga while writing her stories about the young wizards.
The book’s world launch is scheduled for 31st July, the birthday of the writer J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter, at precisely the moment the bells strike twelve. So that all of her fans can buy the English-language edition firsthand, the bookshop will open for a special one-off event at midnight on 30th July.
As a prelude to the event, a party will be held from 10 pm onwards on 30th July with various characters from the saga, magic potions and many other surprises to entertain the young and old “Potterheads” in the queue. The iconic Porto bookshop invites readers to join in the fun and dress up for the event.
"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I & II" was written by Jack Thorne and is based on the original story by J.K. Rowling and John Tiffany. "The Cursed Child" follows the life of Harry Potter nineteen years after "Deathly Hallows" and tells the story of the childhood of his youngest son, Albus Severus Potter.
