HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD RELEASE PARTIES

Dust off your Gryffindor gear and celebrate the long-awaited release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. In this eighth installment, Harry is nineteen years older than in the original books and working at the Ministry of Magic—a father of three struggling with his legacy. The book is the script of the stage play by Jack Thorne, based on a J.K. Rowling story, which premieres in London simultaneously. Most of the Triangle's indie bookstores are throwing late-night release parties for old times' sake. In Durham, The Regulator Bookshop will host a costume party and raffle (11:30 p.m.–midnight, www.regulatorbookshop.com). In Chapel Hill, Flyleaf Books will have a costume contest, crafts, and a birthday cake for Harry with butterbeer to wash it down (10 p.m.–midnight, www.flyleafbooks.com). And in Raleigh, Quail Ridge Books will have Potter-inspired musicians as well as live snakes and owls (10 p.m.–midnight, www.quailridgebooks.com). Be sure to preorder the book from the store of your choice in order to recapture the magic at midnight. —Iza Wojciechowska
