It has been more than 20 years since JK Rowling released Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, changing a generation.
But if you’re still craving more of the Potterverse, don’t worry – Rowling just announced that she is going to be releasing 4 more ebooks later this year that will take you deeper into the magic and lore of the world.
Is There More to Talk About?
Non-fans must think that after dozens of books, movies, and social media reveals, there is nothing more to learn about the Harry Potter world. But they would be wrong. These 4 short ebooks are focusing on the classroom magic at Hogwarts, and different lessons students must attend like Herbology and Divination.
The first two titles, A Journey Through Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts and A Journey Through Potions and Herbology, are scheduled for release June 27th. The second two, A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy and A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures, should be released later this year.
A History of Magic
These new ebooks are reportedly inspired by the British Library exhibition ‘Harry Potter: A History of Magic’ and the companion book. London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason is doing the illustrations for all four ebooks, and should include whimsical sketches, manuscript pages, and notes from classrooms.
