Welcome to Potter Pages!

Here’s what it is: once a week, I’ll use a random number generator to choose a page from the Harry Potter series. Every Friday morning, wake up to several thousand words of analysis of that page in your inbox. How does “the trace” really work? What’s the point of all these random secret rooms at Hogwarts? And where exactly did Filch get his mentality, which is — let’s face it — strangely authoritarian and fascistic for a school caretaker? Potter Pages will explore all that, and much, much more. If you’ve ever wondered what happened to Lavender Brown, or where Fred and George tested their fireworks, or whether, after Professor Quirrell, Dumbledore started cracking down on Hogwarts hat policy, this is the newsletter for you.
