Jim Kay and Olivia Lomenech Gill to Appear at Waterstones Piccadilly in Book Night Special

Earlier this week, we learned that the theme for this year’s Harry Potter Book Night would be Fantastic Beasts. Of course, with the second film in the series out later this year, this is a very topical theme and couldn’t be more appropriate.

Waterstones Piccadilly, the chain’s landmark store, always hosts a big Book Night event. The past few years have included quizzes, parties, special guests, and more! This year, the location has another big treat in store for us. To celebrate the theme, and the release of the two most recent illustrated editions in the series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the store will be hosting Jim Kay and Olivia Lomenech Gill. The two illustrators will be in conversation with BookTrust’s Emily Drabble.

Tickets are £5, or £3 for Waterstones Card Holders. The event will take place on February 1, 2018.

Members of the MuggleNet staff are usually in attendance, so we hope to see you there! Are you planning on attending this year’s Waterstones Piccadilly event? Do you have any Book Night plans? Let us know.
