Scholastic Updates with Special Guests, Video of Prep for Cover to Cover Day
Sep 18, 2008
Previously we told you that Scholastic would be holding a special read-a-thon to celebrate the release of the Tenth Anniversary of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” This Cover to Cover event is to be held next week in New York City at the Scholastic store on Tuesday, September 23. There, you can take turns reading aloud from the new anniversary edition of the first Harry Potter book, while sitting in the same special chair throne that author J.K. Rowling used at the Carnegie Hall event last year. While this event is open to the public, some special guests will be also reading from the book, including”KayCee Stroh from High School Musical 3, the academy award winner Marcia Gay Harden, Kurt Loder from MTV as well as Jill Zarin from Real Housewives of New York on Bravo.”
In addition, the US publishers of the Harry Potter series have been busy getting ready for the read-a-thon event, and have now uploaded video of the preparations being made, which you can watch via this link.
Please note that if you can’t make the event in NYC, you will be able to watch it live on the net at www.scholastic.com/readharry starting at 8:00am (ET).
