Join us in this latest Academic Lesson from the world created by author J.K. Rowling as we dive into the literature of the 'Harry Potter' series.
Host Keith Hawk from MuggleNet is joined with co-host John Granger, the Hogwarts Professor and author of the Deathly Hallows Lectures, as we share insights into the literature series of author J.K. Rowling. On this show we are joined by the esteemed Travis Prinzi, author of 'Harry Potter & Imagination: The Way Between Two Worlds' and editor of two essays - 'Hog's Head Conversations: Essays on Harry Potter, Volume 1' and 'Harry Potter for Nerds'. Also joining the show is our student guest who graduated from the University of Toronto, Natalie Cooper. We discuss a variety of topics on this lesson including: Where will the Harry Potter world of Academia be in the future, Ring Compositions, comparative discussions between Rowling's Hogwarts Saga and the Tolkien and Dickens works, and how our lives have been affected by the story of the Boy Who Lived. So sit down in the Hogs Head and grab a Butterbeer or Fire Whiskey, as you do not want to miss this conversation.
