Who exactly is the Half-Blood Prince and what's so special about him to get to be the title of a book? Join us for a lively discussion of the sixth Harry Potter book, hosted by Miriah.


Nearest Metro: King Street, then walk or talk the free trolley down King Street to La Madeleine. There is street parking outside if you're good at parallel parking and there is a parking garage just behind the restaurant and the maximum evening rate is $2.

    You guys are always plenty of fun, and some really deep perspectives and literary analysis was shared last night. Loved it!

    Thanks for a great discussion, everybody! Here's the link to our facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=24004073949 Also, I was disappointed to find out that our parking garage doubles its rates since the last meetup I attended. *pout*

    Would it be the worst thing if I showed up, but didn't re-read the book recently. I could use some geeky company.

      I didn't re-read it this time either. So I'll have a lot of "oh yeah, that happened in THIS book" moments. So no worries!

      For being late I figured he'd be bigger lol.

      July 22, 2013

    • Talei

      I was surprised he was so big considering she didn't look too big...

    Something I saw on Twitter and thought appropriate for tonight:

    Dear William & Kate: If William is 100% royal and Princess Kate is 0% royal, will that make your son a half-blood prince? #RoyalBaby

    Remember the fun "Who is The Half-Blood Prince?" speculation?

      And then remember finally closing the book at the end and making a face and saying, "Snape had to do it, he didn't have a choice, Dumbledore begged him to! He's still the good guy, I know he is!" And then all your friends looked at you like you were crazy? So you ran away and read fanfic forever waiting for Jo to confirm it.

      Yep I always thought 'there had to be a reason - I know he's on our side'...

    Hope to. My schedule's been so unpredictable of late. Wish I had a time turner built into my motorcycle.

    I'm sorry to inform you I won't be able to make it to this. I was really hoping I could. It would have been wonderful to have this as my first outing. :-)
