Alumni Roundup: Books on the Train
In this week’s Alumni Roundup, we take a trip on the London Underground, celebrate successes, and get a sneak peak at upcoming projects.
Emma Watson announced her latest choice in her Our Shared Shelf feminist book club – Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou.
Emma spent a day leaving copies of the book on public transport across London.

Bonnie Wright composed a heartfelt piece about J.K. Rowling’s charity, Lumos.

Tom Felton was on set, posing with a guitar – although we’re not sure what for… watch this space!
And finally, Matt Lewis was the latest of our alumni to take a visit down memory lane and catch up with the Harry Potter world in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
A giant congratulations and an even bigger thank you to these guys and the rest of the cast of #CursedChild. To be in the movies was a dream come true but it became work and I forgot what it was to be a fan a long time ago. However, over the last two nights I was able to enjoy the world of Harry Potter once again. To lose myself in a story so rich and so powerful and, more importantly, that I had nothing to do with was truly magical. I felt like I was nine years old again, discovering it all for the first time and it is very, very special.
That’s it for the latest installment of our Alumni Roundup. What was your highlight? Did you find a copy of Emma’s book club book on the Underground? Let us know in the comments!
