If you do (and maybe it’s you), please let them know about a couple of Harry Potter discussions we are sponsoring at St. Stephen’s Church in McKeesport. My good friend John Granger, who has written several wonderful books about the Harry Potter novels, will be our guest speaker. John has just finished a book about the deeper theological and philosophical themes in Harry Potter. He is also writing a book about the many ways in which J.K. Rowling has incorporated the great themes of English literature into her stories as well. Instead of the Harry Potter books becoming ‘gateways’ to the occult or youth culture rebellion, they turned out to be ‘gateways’ to William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Dante and Plato.
The events will be held on the evening of November 22nd and early afternoon on November 23rd.
