Hanoi (VNA) - A series of activities titled “Perfectly Magical!” are being held to mark the 20th year since the first Harry Potter book, now a bestselling series by British author J.K. Rowling, was released in Vietnam.

The British Council and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the country’s largest Harry Potter fan club, will host numerous events including interactive games, trivia and drawing contests.

Making its debut 20 years ago, the novel has become a firm favorite among young Vietnamese readers.

“Perfectly Magical!” takes place on Hanoi’s 19/12 book street on May 6-7 and HCM City’s Nguyen Van Binh street on May 13-14 .-VNA
