Cover Revealed for Evanna Lynch’s Memoir, “The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting”
Earlier this year, we were thrilled to hear that Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter) would be publishing a memoir this fall. And last month, Evanna revealed the title and subtitle of the book, The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting: The Tragedy and the Glory of Growing Up.
Now, at last, we get a look at the book’s beautiful cover, featuring a nighttime forest scene with colorful butterflies and other charming creatures.
The memoir will address not only her experiences recovering from childhood anorexia, which she has always been very open about, but also her struggle to find herself while growing up in the public eye, overcoming her self-hate and desire for perfection, and learning how to embrace her creativity.
In her post announcing the title, Evanna explained its significance. She had become fascinated by butterflies, by their beauty and ability to transform, until she recently noticed the violence involved in hunting butterflies to preserve that beauty, an observation very much in line with her vegan activism. Her book instead tells a story of countering this type of “dark pursuit of perfection” by embracing the unpredictable journey of becoming an adult.

We can’t wait to read the book and hear more about Evanna’s incredible journey in her own words.
The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting is available for preorder in hardback, e-book, and audiobook. It will be released on October 14 in the United Kingdom and October 19 in the United States.
