Make sure you grab your robes and wands, Harry Potter fans—we're going to Books-A-Million.
This February, the bookstore chain have plans to host the first-ever Harry Potter Book Night in the U.S., and to say we're freaking out is a bit of an understatement.
According to Bustle, this event isn't anything new for our friends in the U.K., who actually have this event every year thanks to the series publisher, Bloomsbury.
Don't worry U.S. fans, you can still celebrate the big day with the U.K. on the first because there will be a bunch of events taking place all over North America that fans cans participate in. You can check Bloomsbury's interactive map that conveniently shows participating stores.
So you might be asking yourself what exactly the U.S. will be doing for their Harry Potter night…
Harry Potter Book Night is going to be a magical night filled with Harry Potter trivia, cosplay and let's not forget class…yeah, you read that right! Our dreams of taking classes at Hogwarts are finally coming true in the form of magicial creatures, wand and spell classes. There will also be wands for sale at the store for those who don't have a wand handy.
The magical evening will begin at 2 p.m. at your local Books-A-Million on Saturday, Feb. 3!
Keep in mind that this event won't be Books-A-Million's only Harry Potter-themed event. Here's an excerpt from the press release:
Harry Potter Book Night is one of three Potter-themed events to be hosted by Books-A-Million this year. The other events in this series are 20 Years of Magic, set to take place on Saturday, July 28, and Christmas in the Wizarding World, on Saturday, November 10. Harry Potter Book Night attendees will receive a Magical Passport that will carry them through all three events. Guests are encouraged to save their passports after each event, as prizes will be awarded to those with completed passports.
Excited? We sure are! Be sure to check your local Books-A-Million to see if they will be participating in the magical night!
