Don't even act like you don't like Harry Potter. Harry-hatin' was so five years ago. J.K. Rowling's series about the boy wizard has made "Hogwarts" and "Quidditch" household names from Baytown to Bangkok, and hordes of people across the globe are eagerly anticipating the release of the next Potter tome.
Potter-philes will gather at the Baybrook Borders today, not for the release of book seven (sadly), but for the happy occasion of Harry Potter's Birthday Celebration. Fans of all ages are welcome to participate in Potter-themed games, activities and refreshments. Fun fact: Rowling once said that Harry's birthday is July 29, 1980, making our young hero a strapping 26-year-old today. We'll drink a butterbeer to that.
Sat., July 29, 2 p.m.
