Title: 
Harry Potter

John Granger“The Dean of Harry Potter Scholars”

 Everyone is invited to a rousing discussion of Harry Potter, hosted by ‘The Dean of Harry Potter Scholars’, John Granger! A dynamic and engaging speaker (can you say “Funny”?), John explains why we love reading our favorite books in a way everyone can understand and so that we want to read more books.

Granger has been a Keynote speaker at Harry Potter conferences all across the country and has spoken to groups (including Princeton, Pepperdine & New York Public Library) on the symbolism and iconological criticism in literature. With authors Travis Prinzi and James Thomas, John is a “Potter Pundit” on The Leaky Cauldron’s popular “PotterCasts.” Together they have written Harry Potter Smart Talks (Unlocking Press, 2010), a collection of their most popular Pundit podCasts and individual lectures.
