JK Rowling has taken an aggressive stance against the transgender community. Avid Bookshop will not stand for this. As a response, we are pledging to donate a portion of profits from sales of JK Rowling's titles under her name (as well as sales of books written under her pen name Robert Galbraith) to the Athens Queer Collective.

A portion of proceeds from the sales of books on these reading lists: Trans Reads, Kids Edition and NOT H*rry P*tter will also go towards the Athens Queer Collective. 

We support, uplift, and rally around the trans members of our community.

Description


Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility.

All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley - a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry's room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in eleven years.

But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry - and anyone who reads about him - will find unforgettable.

For it's there that he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic in everything from classes to meals, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him... if Harry can survive the encounter.

Praise For…


* "Readers are in for a delightful romp with this award-winning debut from a British author who dances in the footsteps of P.L. Travers and Roald Dahl."
*Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Rowling's wonderful ability to put a fantastic spin on sports, student rivalry, and eccentric faculty contributes to the humor, charm, and, well, delight of her utterly captivating story."
*Booklist, starred review

* "Harry himself is the perfect confused and unassuming hero, whom trouble follows like a wizard's familiar. After reading this entrancing fantasy, readers will be convinced that they, too, could take the train to Hogwarts School, if only they could find Platform Nine and Three Quarters at the King's Cross Station."
*School Library Journal, starred review
