Loved the books, loved the movies (okay, not all of them, but we won't get into that right now), and I'm not even ashamed to admit that I'm a total Harry Potter nerd. (Whatever, guys. Judge me. I don't care.)

Which was why I was super thrilled to hear about the Harry Potter event being put on by Cégep du Vieux Montréal (255 Rue Ontario E) on November 4.

Entrance is free, but any money made will be going towards the school's quidditch team.
