Attention muggles: Two new Harry Potter books are coming later this year

Attention muggles: Two new Harry Potter books are coming later this year”

The books will be released in coordination with the Harry Potter exhibit at the British Library, which opens October 20.

"The 20th anniversary of Bloomsbury's first publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was celebrated on 26 June 2017". Studio tour in northern London, and the Kickstarter-funded wizarding pub (not affiliated with the official Potter franchise) that hopes to open in London next year all add to the wealth of experiences available to fans.

So, while the two newest editions won't develop Harry's story any further, we do have Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to fill in those gaps.

The news comes as the publisher reveals a jump in revenues of 19 per cent for the three months to 31 May, driven by its consumer division.

Best selling Bloomsbury titles in the quarter included Tom Kerridge's Dopamine Diet, The Strange Death of Europe by Douglas Murray and Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World by Kate Pankhurst, while the Harry Potter series also continues to be a best seller.

Sales in digital resources, which features the recently launched Bloomsbury Popular Music, rose 16 per cent.

The first quarter traditionally generates its smallest profit of the financial year, the company said. (A representative of Scholastic wasn't immediately sure of their status here.) Bloomsbury does plan to publish digital copies of the books on the 20th to the Pottermore website, however.
