From the Leaky Lounge: Reading Groups for OotP Start Today, Icon Contest UnderwayLeakyLounge
The Leaky Lounge is our forum where you can join in and talk to Harry Potter fans all around the world. A site of continual activities relating to Harry Potter, we have a few updates today.
First, the Lily & Stag Inn Reading Groups, will begin sorting today at 9am Eastern as they prepare to read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. These groups are small private groups where you can gather together, read then discuss in great detail the books in an intimate setting. The goal this time with OotP is to delve into motivations of individual characters, the importance of plot lines, and the "clues" that turned out to be red herrings. Groups will learn more about The Order and the first war, the relationships that helped define the Wizarding world, and develop further understanding about death in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. If you've participated in the reading groups before, you will know what a wonderful, relaxing and positive experience these groups can be, and you will need to be resorted for this latest round. To sort, you will need to click here. Also today at 4pm eastern, please join Daniel and Laura as they will be holding a new Ustream chat on the book, the groups and much more; hope to see you there!
