Harry Potter and Generation Y
The New York Times has posted a new article on Harry Potter's importance to Generation Y.
Here's an excerpt:
The continuing pull of all things Potter is a testament to the franchise’s enduring sway. But it also seems like something else: the advent of Generation Y nostalgia.
Let the boomers have their 40th anniversary of Woodstock. Let Generation X commemorate the 15 years since Kurt Cobain shot himself. For Generation Y – those born roughly between 1980 and 2003 – it’s the pop culture of the late ’90s and early 2000s that makes them wistful.
What do you think? Is Harry Potter our Peter Pan?
