Cheers to our Favorite Series!

Mid-July has long held special meaning in the hearts of Harry Potter fans. For many years, July signaled the release of the next volume in the adventures of Harry, Hermione, and Ron. We cheered with them, we wept with them, we grew with them. No matter how eagerly we anticipated Year 7, Deathly Hallows was the end of an era.
 
This year, however, July 31st takes on special significance. Not only is it the birthday of Harry, it is also the release date of the eighth story in the saga, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, concurrent to the opening of the West End show in London. Fans young and old are rejoicing and planning Potter themed parties and midnight releases.* At last we can return to the wizarding world, where we always knew the adventures of our favorite trio never really ended.
 
Literary series capture our imagination; beloved characters return for new adventures, family sagas that span generations can be properly told, and breathless cliffhangers can at last be resolved (I'm looking at you, Conan Doyle!). More well-known are the series for children (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and The Raven Cycle, to name a few), though more series for adults are becoming popular (store faves include The Neapolitan Novels, My Struggle, and Game of Thrones). They are a common thread, a way to connect with family or make new friends, for armchair travelers searching for new worlds.
 
So here's to our favorite series! May they be be added to, transformed into plays, films, and television series, kept alive through fan-fiction and retellings. For our favorites stories will always live on, as long as there's an audience.
 
*Join us on July 30th for our own Harry Potter Celebration. Details available here.
