Two new Harry Potter books are set to be published on October 20, 2017, by Bloomsbury and Pottermore. Unfortunately, the forthcoming books are not novels but rather history books. That’s right, the two books, Harry Potter—A History of Magic and Harry Potter—A Journey Through the History of Magic, are accounts of magical history. A History of Magic is a collection of the real-life historical inspirations for J.K. Rowling’s wizardry. A Journey Through the History of Magic will present “subjects that Harry and his friends study at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, from Potions and Herbology to Astronomy and Care of Magical Creatures,” according to the British Library’s website. According to the site, A Journey Through the History of Magic is more angled towards a younger audience, while A History of Magic will keep all fans thoroughly engaged.
