Word for Word takes part in:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Script release party

with staged readings from parts of
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

July 30, 2016 | 8 PM at Bookshop West Portal

It's not everyday that something new is released in the Harry Potter wizarding world. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is of special interest because it is the first time a Harry Potter work has premiered as a play. Word for Word is thrilled to take part in Bookshop West Portal's party for the midnight release of the script.


Bookshop West Portal will transform—as if by magic—into Flourish and Blotts Bookstore.  The courtyard adjacent to the store will become Diagon Alley, the main shopping thoroughfare of the wizarding world.  Additionally, a large section of the West Portal shopping district, along with the West Portal branch of the San Francisco Public Library will join in the wizarding fun. Word for Word's reading will take place around 8 PM, but there are magical activities for the whole family all day and night long. Be sure to visit Bookshop West Portal's website for a full event description.
