Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Got a string up updates coming your way for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Though I am sure most of you, like me, are still enjoying a nice hang over from celebrating our founding fathers' fight against tyranny, hopefully these updates work somewhat as a pain reliever.

Harry Potter Book Release Event in Canada
Rachelle Tessier sent me over this press release for an upcoming event in honor of the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Fans have gotten together in Toronto, Canada in anticipation of the release of the final Harry Potter novel. Sixteen volunteers have created a Potter Party in Casa Loma for July 20th, which has many fans buzzing in excitement.
With Casa Loma being an actual castle built in the early 1900s, the location already gives the sense of a Canadian “wizard school”. This was one of the main inspirations which triggered the event’s organization.
Led by 20-year-old Rachelle Tessier, the volunteers consist of young adults ranging in age from 16-22 years, who are fuelled by their love of reading and for the popular Harry Potter series.
Together, these youths have pulled together their experiences to create every fan’s dream party. With a schedule ranging from a formal dinner, to a live rock concert, to a variety of contests and games, the party is intended to keep even the most die-hard fans happy throughout the evening.
“I’ve attended events in the past that were heavily aimed at a younger audience, and I found they [the party organizers] seem to forget that the original fan base grows older and more mature with each new book, which is part of what makes Harry Potter so unique,” says Rachelle, speaking on how the party was planned.
It is for this reason that the event has been restricted to ages 14 and over. However, due to the nature of the event and the position of the volunteers, guests must register and pay for admission online through their website http://hp-casaloma.virgin-designs.net, where they can also pre-purchase a copy of the final novel.
