Post Harry Potter newly-illustrated U.S. book set to be released in Sept., plus fan events

Scholastic announced that to commemorate the 20th anniversary since the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in the United States, they will release a newly-illustrated book set by Brian Selznick, out this September.

Additionally, Scholastic is planning major events throughout the year including celebrations at bookstores, libraries, schools, and festivals around the country this fall. More details to come later this year.



Harry Potter fans of all ages can look forward to a magical 2018. As part of its year-long campaign to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the U.S. publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Scholastic (NASDAQ: SCHL) announced today that worldwide bestselling and Caldecott Medal-winning artist Brian Selznick will illustrate new paperback editions of J.K. Rowling’s bestselling Harry Potter series to be published in July 2018. A collectible boxed set designed by Selznick also will be available in September.

“I’m a big Harry Potter fan and it is an incredible honor to illustrate J.K. Rowling’s iconic series,” said Brian Selznick. “I am thrilled to play a part in this exciting 20th anniversary celebration and look forward to meeting Harry Potter fans and readers across the country.”

“Brian Selznick, with his unique and cinematic approach, is a visionary and the perfect artist to illustrate these new Harry Potter editions, for readers of all ages,” said Ellie Berger, President, Scholastic Trade. “As the longtime U.S. publisher of Harry Potter, we’ve seen firsthand the impact of the series over the past twenty years—from the early support and enthusiasm among booksellers and librarians, to kids discovering the books for the first time, and to families and friends lining up for midnight parties. On this milestone anniversary, we are excited to join the legions of fans as we celebrate this cultural phenomenon, and look forward to introducing Harry Potter to a new generation of readers.”

To mark the 20th anniversary of the U.S. publication of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Scholastic is planning major events throughout the year including celebrations at bookstores, libraries, schools, and festivals around the country. The Wizarding World will have one of its busiest years ever in the U.S. with the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child coming to Broadway in April; the British Library’s exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic opening at the New-York Historical Society in October; and the 2nd Fantastic Beasts movie, The Crimes of Grindelwald, opening in theaters in November. In addition to the newly designed paperback editions, Scholastic will publish books in conjunction with the exhibition and film. The seven Harry Potter books have sold more than 160 million copies in the U.S. alone and over 450 million copies worldwide. The books are published in over 200 territories in 80 languages.

Brian Selznick’s books have garnered countless accolades worldwide, and have been translated into more than 35 languages. He is the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the #1 New York Times bestsellers The Invention of Hugo Cabret, adapted into Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning movie Hugo; and Wonderstruck, adapted by celebrated filmmaker Todd Haynes, with a screenplay by Selznick; as well as The Marvels, which is loosely connected to Hugo and Wonderstruck by themes of family and discovery. Selznick recently worked with Christopher Wheeldon on a new narrative for a re-imagined Nutcracker at the Joffrey Ballet. Selznick has also worked as a puppeteer and a set designer, and began his career as a bookseller at Eeyore's Books for Children in New York City. His most recent project is Baby Monkey, Private Eye, a nearly 200-page illustrated book for beginning readers co-written with his husband Dr. David Serlin. They divide their time between Brooklyn, New York, and San Diego, California.
