Bookstores prepare generation-spanning release parties for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

When Scholastic first announced the script, the managers of Austin’s largest independent bookstore BookPeople resolved they would not do a midnight release party. And yet, less than two days away from the book’s release at midnight on July 31, preparations are in full swing for a Saturday night parking lot party at BookPeople, complete with food trucks and Diagon Alley facades and wizard costumes for the staff. Just like the old days.
