Today brings the release of another translated edition of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” this time in the Czech Republic. Czech news source Rozhlas reported the main release event was held at the Kanzelsberger Bookshop where hundreds of eager fans lined up starting Wednesday to get their copy at midnight. The store held an all day event for fans of all ages, which included a discussion with the Czech translator of the novels, Pavel Medek. Klára Honzíková, who organized the release event at the bookstore, compared this event to the previous releases by saying:

“I think it was quite similar. I think this was the third time we’ve done this in the bookstore. The attendance was around the same. Maybe this time it was a little bit higher because this was the last book. I think it turned out great.”

Ms. Honzíková also spoke to why she believes the phenomenon of the Harry Potter novels captured so many people’s imaginations all over the world. She said:

“Well, if you read the book, you’ll know. It’s a wonderful book, it’s beautifully written. And it has this combination of magic and the real world. So you feel like it really could happen to you. So, you think that maybe sometime you’ll get the letter and go to Hogwarts school. So I think that it is this that makes it more real.”
