BIRMINGHAM, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Merlin’s beard! Nine years after publication of the last novel in
J.K. Rowling’s best-selling series, the magic of Harry Potter returns in
theatrical form as a play with new adventures and even more enchanted
encounters on London’s West End stage. Fans are sure to be spellbound
when the special edition script book of the two-part play, Harry
Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts I & II
officially hits bookshelves after the show’s world premiere this summer.

To celebrate the latest chapter in the world of wizardry, Books-A-Million
is now offering a special sale with 40 percent off all pre-orders.
Customers eager to get their hands on the anticipated eighth installment
can reserve a copy online at

“The Harry Potter series has charmed generations of parents and children
alike since the very beginning, and the continuation of the beloved
story brings its literary magic back to life,” said Sandra Wilson,
senior book buyer at Books-A-Million. “For fans who aren’t able to
travel across the pond for the big play debut, this script book release
allows the epic eighth Harry Potter story to be enjoyed by a wider,
global audience.”

The play, written by Jack Thorne and based on an original new story by
J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, is the first official Harry
Potter story to be presented on stage and describes Harry’s life 19
years after “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” The story features
Potter as an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and
father of three school-age children. While he grapples with a past that
refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle
with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present
fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth:
sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
