April Monthly Meetup - Books Explained Badly Book Swap!


It's April and the Weasley Twins have caused yet another problem with their birthday antics! They created a new variation of the Confundus Charm and set it loose in the Hogwart's Library!

All the book titles and jackets are indecipherable! Librarian Irma Pince however has discovered a loophole. Anyone who has previous read a book can describe the book to someone else. But there is a catch! The spell only allows them to describe the book BADLY.
Bring a book that you would like to share with one of our fellow members to our April Book Swap Meetup. There are several requirements you need to follow:

- Everyone who wants to receive a book must bring a book. (But you can still attend the Meetup and hang out with your fellow Witches and Wizards even if you don't bring a book).

- Your book must be covered so that its completely impossible to know the title

- A brief bad explanation/description of the plot of the book should be written on the front coverings.

- Books can be new or used and please just bring only one book =D

We will go around the room and each librarian's assistant will swap books with another as they try to guess the actual titles based on the bad descriptions!
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. Raffle tickets are

1 Ticket for $2
3 Tickets for $5
20 Tickets for $20

We are able to accept cash, charge and Venmo.

Please do not let this discourage you from attending if you cannot contribute, it is only a request, not a requirement. Thank you for your support!
