Ye Gods! Harry Potter!
Second Street in Davis was closed last night, between the Avid Reader Bookstore and the Varsity Theatre, with pretty-sturdy traffic barriers, just to accomodate the Harry Potter crowds. Good grief!
"Danielle' was the first person ever to describe Harry Potter to me (cast member, DMTC, Peter Pan, 2001). I thought her attachment to this unknown book was exotic at the time.
Today, I think the attachment of millions worldwide to these books is amazing, nearly-inexplicable, and even more exotic.
