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 one of the most highly regarded book critics from the New York Times and author of several fantasy books - Lev Grossman. We are also joined by two student guests including Jessica Jordan from Wesleyan College and Jonathan Brown, a recent graduate from the University of Southampton in the UK. In this lesson we discuss the writings of fantasy books 'The Magician's' and 'The Magician King' from author Lev Grossman as well as an in-depth look at J.K. Rowling's 'The Casual Vacancy' novel.
