From the Publisher

2017 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved classic Jennifer, Hecatate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth is an only child, new in town, and the shortest kid in her class. She’s also pretty lonely, until she meets Jennifer. Jennifer is...well, different. She’s read Macbeth. She never wears jeans or shorts. She never says “please” or “thank you.” And she says she is a witch.

It’s not always easy being friends with a witch, but it’s never boring. At first an apprentice and then a journeyman witch, Elizabeth learns to eat raw eggs and how to cast small spells. And she and Jennifer collaborate on cooking up an ointment that will enable them to fly. That’s when a marvelous toad, Hilary Ezra, enters their lives. And that’s when trouble starts to brew.

How to be Lady Jane Grey. And then, gradually, the great prose novels in English. And so on. All these made a kind of reading different from the reading of poetry, less call to orders, more vacation.

Harry Potter Returns to Work Magic on the West End Stage

THE PALACE THEATRE IN LONDON’S West End has seen many hits over the years, Les Misérables among them. But surely nothing can compare to the hysteria surrounding its latest tenant, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the eighth installment of the saga. Nine years after the final novel’s publication, J.K. Rowling’s beloved characters are back in a two-part play created by Rowling, playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany. Anticipation has been feverish; producer Sonia Friedman has compared the endeavor to opening a Star Wars movie in a single cinema. And yet there has been little advance
