Chasing Magic: Muggle Mementos


Harry Potter


This collection includes primary source documents related to my personal Harry Potter fan experiences, with content from 2001 to 2019. Enjoy comparing form letter responses to J.K. Rowling fan mail sent in 2001, 2004, and 2017! Check out how many house points I won for Slytherin before the 2015 Pottermore redesign! Ever wonder exactly what time it was when I finished savoring Book 7 for the first time? Wonder no more. This collection includes the 3x5" note card on which I wrote that time--and another on which I wrote a couple of haiku poems about my college Quidditch team. Autographs, event tickets, tour maps, postcards, and even one haphazardly scribbled diagram await in Chasing Magic: Muggle Mementos. Alohomora!
