Next Meetup

June Monthly Meetup: Discussion - Fathers and Fatherhood in Harry Potter
It can be said, that to have a short life expectancy in the Harry Potter books. Be someone's dad. Granted, some of the fathers do survive. Some due to a last minute change by the author. Others who might not deserve it. What can also be said is that many kinds of fathers are depicted. Fathers by parentage, fathers by adoption and fathers by bonding. Caring and ever present, distant and forlorn, angry, crude, and abusive. And fathers who love their children but in their unique ways. --- With June being the month of Father's Day. Our June discussion will focus on the fathers and fatherhood in the Harry Potter book series (the core 7 books, other apocrypha will not be included). Led by Irvin K, please join us for another of our engaging discussion Meetups! --- Our monthly Meetups are almost always free to attend. We do collect donations during each monthly Meetup (or sometimes hold a raffle). This helps fund our operating costs as well as supplies like prizes, crafting materials and more. You are also welcome to donate at any time via the internet at Please do not let this discourage you from attending if you cannot contribute at this time, it is only a request, not a requirement. Thank you for your support!

Our main sponsor is Jordan Dené ( - Maker of kitchen armor, outfitter of crayon soldiers.

Jordan Dené is a matchmaker of sorts, first introducing and later marrying practicality and pop culture. Pennsylvania-bred and Brooklyn-based, Jordan specializes in creating aprons with geek-chic graphic designs and creative curios like the best-selling crayon bandolier (as seen in Real Simple’s holiday gift guide).

Although initially sewing was solely supposed to be a creative outlet, thanks in part to Etsy’s enthusiastic crafting community, Jordan’s hobby quickly turned into a wonderfully hectic small business.

Jordan’s products are crafted with individual care and are fashionable, functional and 100 percent customizable. With handcrafted items like the ever-popular TARDIS aprons, golden snitch necklaces and canvas bags embroidered with whichever Hogwarts House suits your fancy, Jordan’s shop has everything to fit your niche needs.
