Join the Harry Potter Alliance for their second annual Accio Books Campaign live broadcast today at 4:00pm EST featuring Maureen Johnson, Lauren Fairweather, Paul DeGeorge, and Brian Ross as they kick off their book drive supporting the Delta Center for Culture and Learning and Mississippi Delta region of the United States.  Each year, HPA comes together with four 'Heads of House' to raise awareness and support of both local and nation book donations in support of advanced literacy across the globe.  Last year, the efforts by HPA raised over 14,000 books, 4,000 of which went directly to a youth village in Rwanda. 


Starting Monday, March 1, you can join Harry Potter fans across the world in donating books to their local communities, as well as to HPA's partners at the Delta Center for Culture and Learning who will disperse each of your donated books to amazing community centers throughout the Mississippi Delta.  The live broadcast on the Say AHA LiveStream channel will feature complete information about this effort, and much more with our four 'Heads of House.'

See you there!

And yet again the Harry Potter fandom proves that we can unite to collect and commit resources to important causes. Never does this fandom relent in its efforts to improve lives throughout the world, a truly admirable cause that is causing Albus Dumbledore to smile down upon us.

It’s great idea. Since we all love to read here no child should be denied because they don’t have a book.

It’s a great initiative – one wich’s proven that can bring back even greater results. They have my admiration. Too bad I can’t be a part of it!

Madam Snape you can be a part of it. I dont remember exactly how Accio Books worked last year but, the book drive ran for a few weeks. So, you can donate books at any time :)

Guess That Book

Hagrid was wearing his best (and very horrible) hairy brown suit, plus a checked yellow-and-orange tie. This wasn't the worst of it, though; he had evidently tried to tame his hair, using large quantities of what appeared to be axle grease. It was now sli
