This year, Harry Potter Day is part of a month’s worth of events that extend into April, honoring the world of Harry Potter at Kenyon and beyond. An exhibit in the library; sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, examines Harry Potter’s world in relation to science and medicine; other events have included a scholarly talk and a beer-brewing “potions” class. Harry Potter Day itself involved students and community members alike with a scavenger hunt for the “House Cup,” book readings at the Bookstore, a Harry Potter-themed dinner at Peirce and a costume parade followed by a showing of A Very Potter Musical in Gund Gallery.
