A generation says goodbye to Harry Potter
Makenzie Greenblatt, a 20-year-old student at the University of Washington, began reading Harry Potter in 1999 when she received the first book in the series for Hanukkah. Back then, people barely knew the significance of a lightning-shaped scar when her friend's little brother dressed up as the boy who lived for Halloween. Now the cultural boom is inescapable.
Meeting someone who hasn't read the books, or at least watched a movie is weird for Terra Morgan, a 21-year-old University of Washington student who sat next to Greenblatt at the movie, wearing a Gryffindor-style gold and crimson striped scarf. For Morgan, Harry Potter is more than a book series.
I guess UW is just the place for HP fans.
