Two new Harry Potter books are coming in October



A pair of new books concerning the beloved Harry Potter universe are coming this October, according to Business Insider.

Business Insider reported Tuesday that the publisher Bloomsbury announced the two titles will mark the 20th anniversary of the first book in the series by author J.K. Rowling.

The first book, “Harry Potter: A History of Magic, The Book of the Exhibition,” will reportedly cover the subjects studied at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the stories.

The second title, “Harry Potter, A Journey Through a History of Magic,” explores the history of Potter’s world through topics like magical creatures, spells and famous witches and wizards.

Some Twitter users on Wednesday celebrated the new entries, which will come two decades after the release of “Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone.”

Business Insider reported that the new books will explore Potter’s world but are not new adventures featuring the character and his supporting cast.

The books are reportedly accompanying a Potter exhibition that the British Library is conducting this October.

The Potter world expanded last year with the premiere of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” a two-part play that debuted that July in London.

Bloomsbury published the first Potter book in 1997, with Rowling’s seven book series ultimately becoming a global success.

The series concerns the exploits of Potter, a young British man who discovers magic exists and that he is a wizard.

Actor Daniel Radcliffe began portraying Potter in movie versions of the novel in 2001, completing the series with “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” in 2011.
