By now, the name “Beatrice Groves” should be familiar to MuggleNet readers. The research lecturer and tutor at Trinity College, Oxford, has shared tons of fascinating interpretations on our site, so it’s no surprise that we’re thrilled to be reviewing her book, “Literary Allusion in Harry Potter”, here today!
Our Author Takeover this month is dedicated to everyone headed to university/college this autumn/fall! It comes from Brit authors Lucy and Tom, whose novel “Freshers” is all about that first transitional year. In particular, the benefits of fandom and clubs for finding your people.
The book introduces us to the Andreas sisters – three young women, two of whom are in their twenties and one in her early thirties – who reunite in the small college town where they were raised to care for their now-ill mother. The three sisters must now deal with their past, present, and future while simultaneously dealing with each other, something they haven’t done since they were little.
