They say you should write research papers on things that really interest you, so why not write about The Boy Who Lived? Come for a conversation about Harry Potter Studies (yes! that's a thing!) and how to convince your professors to let you bring Hogwarts into your academic projects.
This workshop is presented by librarian Tolonda Henderson, who has presented at academic conferences on Harry Potter and libraries.
