Beedle the Bard Discussion

We will discuss The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a supplementary Harry Potter book by J.K. Rowling. Read the book and come to the meetup to share your thoughts!

Some things to think about: 

• What was your favorite tale? Least favorite?

• What elements from the stories do we see in the Harry Potter books? 

• If they were to make a movie of any of the tales, which would you most like to see? 

•  Did you enjoy the comments from Dumbledore and Hermione about each story or were they unnecessary? 

• Do you have any favorite Fanart/Fanvids/WRock based on the tales?

Awww!  Sweet art by julvett!  James and Lily with Baby Harry.

    Here's a rendition of The Fountain of Fair Fortune. The acting isn't great but the videography is decent. It's worth a share I guess! http://youtu.be/cTq5xAsNUf4­

      Beautiful animation, but I wish they'd used Lena's version. It rhymes and the music is so beautiful. It will always be my definitive version of the story! I always tune out Hermione's voice and insert Lena's version in my head during this scene in the movie: https://www.youtube.co...­

      Though speaking of fanart, I coincidentally came across this today: http://www.pinterest....­

    We are going to try something new for the location, Pines of Florence, for 2 reasons. 1, this is closer to the Metro station and 2, I am ready for a change. I am open to suggestions for alternative venues. Do you have a suggestion? The place must be willing to accommodate our group, should be economical, should offer variety and should be Metro accessible. Email me or comment to this post if you have a suggestion.

      Sergio, a lot of planning goes in to the order and timing a particular meetup. We try to mix in book discussions with character and theme discussion and not overwhelm our member with too much reading on consecutive months. With a discussion of "Silkworm" and "Emma" planned for later this year, we need to keep "Beedle" here. I am sorry you won't be able to attend but will happy to have a mini-discussion the next time I see you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
