On June 26, 1997, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published. Doesn’t it seem so weird, knowing that 15 years ago, you didn’t even know about this story that would change your lives forever? Harry Potter has definitely defined a generation, and back then on this day, you couldn’t even being to imagine what it would become. I was only 1 when it was released, so I don’t remember anything, obviously. My mom started reading Harry Potter to me when I was 6, and it was the first chapter book I’d ever read on my own.
Tell us your thoughts on how it feels to know this all started 15 years ago! Doesn’t seem like it’s been that long, right?
Happy 15th anniversary Harry Potter! And thank you so much, Joanne Rowling, for changing our lives.
