"A Harry Potter Book Night Celebration for children in grades 2 through 4 will be held on Feb. 19 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Ashland University’s Ronk Lecture Hall in the Dwight Schar College of Education Building.
This national Potter event is sponsored by AU’s College of Education early childhood teacher education program and run by student volunteers. Free fun activities related to the Harry Potter book series will be conducted. To add to the ambiance of the event, the dress code for the event is wizarding robes or other character outfits.
Upon arrival, children will be sorted into “houses,” so reservations are essential. Those wanting to attend should contact Lisa Kilper, captain of the AU Quidditch Team, at quidditch at ashland.edu." - - originally posted, MyAU, 2/2/15
