Harry Potter A History of Magic, the British Library&rsquos most successful exhibition, has opened at the New-York Historical Society. The New York exhibition explores the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories and showcases a new selection of objects that are on view to the public for the very first time.
Centuries-old treasures, including Rowling&rsquos handwritten first drafts of The Philosopher&rsquos Stone and Deathly Hallows, her hand-drawn sketch of the Hogwarts grounds, and portraits and sketches of some of the Hogwarts&rsquos professors and magical creatures created by British illustrator Jim Kay will be on display.
A wide variety of exhibition-related events for grown-up Harry Potter fans throughout the run of the exhibition, including trivia nights, art workshops, creative writing classes, social meet-ups, open mics, book clubs, and engaging courses that explore the Hogwarts curriculum will be in motion. Additional programming information is available at harrypotter.nyhistory.org.
