Coming Soon: J.K. Rowling Will Release Four E-Book 'Shorts' Based on Hogwarts Classes
Most fans of the Harry Potter series have dreamed about going to school at Hogwarts at least once. Well, get your wands and robes ready, Muggles: your wishes are about to come true.
Forbes reports that, beginning next month, Pottermore Publishing—J.K. Rowling’s publishing platform for Wizarding World e-books and other digital products—will be releasing four e-book “shorts” based on the classes that an ambitious young wizard would take at Hogwarts. Titles will include Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy, and Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology.
The books on charms and potions will be available as soon as June 27, 2019.
This is not the first time Rowling has released textbook-style content from the Wizarding World. Under Potteresque pseudonyms, the author wrote two books in 2001—Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Rowling composed the books as versions of Hogwarts textbooks often referenced in the Harry Potter series. Fantastic Beasts eventually became its own series, leading to the film franchise starring Eddie Redmayne.
