Lawton & Worldwide_Everyone is just wild about Harry. Harry Potter, that is, at least it seems that way. The Harry Potter phenomenon hits Lawton, once again. The newest, and the very last, book goes on sale tonight at midnight. Midnight marks the first sale of the last book in the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
We didn't see any lines in Lawton today because folks have been able to reserve their copies of the new book and, their places in line to buy it. Since it's been called one of the most-awaited books of the year, stores are hosting book parties to celebrate the sale. And, most readers can hardly wait to see how the series finally ends.
Harry Potter lives. Harry Potter dies. Which one is it? That's the question on many people's minds tonight. Sisters Isabella & Clarissa Schaffino are debating, worrying and eager to get their hands on the latest copy of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" to find out. And, they're being smart about it. They took advantage of Waldenbooks' Wristband Sale. The wristband lets you buy your place in line.
Manager Jason Parli says it's going to be a great night. But, that's not the only party celebrating this new book. Hasting's Assistant Manager Jeremy Gluck is busy setting up the store for their "Potter Party." and they're expecting a big crowd. "Compared to our last year reservations, we got a much larger response, especially being the last book. And I expect a good 300 people in here just for tonight," Gluck said.
