The Press Association of the UK is reporting that the first novel in J. K. Rowling’s series, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” was named the third ‘Top Cultural Moment’ of the past twenty-one years in Britain via a new survey. Conducted to mark the 21st anniversary of Hay Literary Festival, the poll placed the 1997 publication of the book behind the 1990 World Cup performance by the Three Tenors and the 1997 opening of a replica of the historic Globe theater on the list. The Hay Literary Festival is open now and runs through June 1st in the town of Hay-On-Wye in Wales, United Kingdom. Congratulations to Jo!
