For five years, HPEF has helped to promote the spread of literacy by producing magical events for fans and scholars. Now it is your turn to help share your love of reading and the Harry Potter novels, just by purchasing your summer reading list at any Barnes & Noble Booksellers the weekend of June 20-22, 2008.

All purchases, outside of textbooks, gift cards, and B&N membership cards, will help support future HP Education Fanon events, include PORTUS in Dallas, LEVEL TWO in San Jose, and INFINITUS at the Universal Orlando Resort. All you need to do is tell the cashier the Bookfair number 310268, or provide the voucher upon checkout. Whether you purchase a mocha and a scone in the Cafe or your third copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, a portion of the proceeds will go to help support future HPEF events.

You can also help support the Dallas area charity, LIFT (Literacy Instruction for Texas) by purchasing an item off the LIFT Wish List. Any books purchased for LIFT will be used in providing literacy classes to adults surrounding the Dallas area. LIFT was created to address the critical adult literacy issues in Dallas through programs which are accessible to adults at the lowest levels of literacy. With specialized ESL and Family Literacy programs, LIFT focuses on those who would normally be overlooked or ignored in standard educational initiatives. A child’s educational success is greatly increased by a parent who reads and reads with the child. We all know the joy reading Harry Potter has brought to us. Let’s pass that joy on by making a donation of a book to LIFT. Simply call the Arlington Barnes and Noble store on June 20-22 (817-472-7559) to place an order off of the LIFT wish-list.

If you have a meet up group, and would like to host a meet up at a Barnes & Noble the weekend of June 20-22, please send us an email to pr@portus2008.org.

Please pass along this along to your friends, family, and fellow Harry Potter fans. Anyone can help by purchasing during the Bookfair. This is an event they won't want to miss!
