Local Barnes & Noble stores celebrate the 15th Anniversary since Scholastic release of Potter series

The 15th Anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by Scholastic, here in the United States, is approaching fast. To celebrate the milestone, Scholastic is re-releasing the Harry Potter paperback books with new artwork designed by Kazu Kibuishi. MuggleNet has been following these events since Scholastic announced the special edition of the series, the latest report of which you can find right here.

Additionally, to celebrate the anniversary, local Barnes & Noble book stores will be hosting special events, like the Barnes & Noble in Evansville, IN, which is hosting a Harry Potter Trivia Contest on Saturday, August 24 at 4:00 p.m.
