Have you always wanted to read the Harry Potter books? Here's your chance! In this book club, first-time readers will gather together over a bagel brunch to discover and discuss major plot points, twists, and themes in the series. It's never too late to discover the Wizarding World!

In our first session, we will discuss books 1 through 3.  In our second session, we will focus on books 4 and 5, and in our final session we will finish the series with books 6 and 7. Participants will visit the exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic during the final session.
