J.K. Rowling launches “Harry Potter at Home” to help bored families during pandemic lockdowns

Author J.K. Rowling is launching some new content to help families cope with Coronavirus lockdowns.

A new online hub, called “Harry Potter at Home,” will be aimed at younger children and launched on the official Harry Potter website “wizardingworld.com.”

One of its first offerings is a free e-book version of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”– the first in the Harry Potter series.

A free audio book — read by British actor Stephen Fry– is also available.

Both versions of the book will be free for the entire month of April.

In addition to the book, “Harry Potter at Home,” will send out a “Wizarding Wednesdays” email newsletter each week with activities and quizzes.

Rowling says she launched the site because the children, teachers and parents working from home all deserve – quote- “a bit of magic” right now.
