Today, June 23, 2016, marks the start of the American Library Association's Annual Conference, which is being held in Orlando this year. Since so many librarians and library fans will be taking advantage of the nearby Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park while there, we decided to do another Harry Potter themed episode!

Jill is joined by Sheila, Andrea, and Christina as they discuss how they got into the books, Hybrid Hogwarts Houses, the differences between the books and the movies, favorite secondary characters, and their thoughts on the new play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is due to be published on July 31st and is currently available for pre-order for our library partners.
