Yesterday, Pottermore launched the official Wizarding World Book Club and revealed the discussion themes for the first month. Available free to all registered users of Pottermore, the club offers members an opportunity to join a global community of HP readers focusing on the same book at the same time. It is available on pottermore.com, working with the Harry Potter print publishers Bloomsbury and Scholastic, and Pottermore's digital publishing business.
The book club begins with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Pottermore will host curated content specific to each book. There will also be Twitter discussions hosted on the Wizarding World Book Club Twitter account, @wwbookclub, every Friday at 4 p.m. BST, beginning June 23.
"We have launched the Wizarding World Book Club in response to a strong demand from our community for a destination to discuss the many nuances and themes of the books" said Henriette Stuart-Reckling, global digital director, Pottermore. "The Wizarding World Book Club provides an exciting opportunity for Harry Potter fans to share their thoughts about key scenes, plot points, motivations and characters from the series with a vast global community."
