Where Harry Potter Meets Hunger Games In Soho – January 2014

As an avid Goosebumps reader when I was in grade school, whenever I pass the Scholastic Store in Soho, I think about my childhood of Clifford the Big Red Dog, The Magic Schoolbus, and now more recently with the Hunger Games.  They also own the characters for Harry Potter, and I might be the only one who has never gotten into the books/movies (sorry!).  I reached out to the Scholastic Store in Soho and got in touch with the publicist who informed me of the FREE upcoming events in January 2014.   You can also view the full calendar as it is updated here.  Where Harry Potter Meets Hunger Games In Soho – January 2014.
