Happy Birthday, Hermione Granger
September 19, 2010, 12:30 AM
The calendar at J.K. Rowling's official website has been updated to mark the birthday of everyone's favourite know-it-all. Please join us here at Leaky in wishing many happy returns to the wonderful, brave and ever-prepared Hermione Granger! Cheers, Hermione!
Since Hermione turned 11 on September 19, 1979, and presumably got her letter about that time, she had nearly a year to prepare herself for Hogwarts. You might enjoy the story “A Witch Awakens” about Hermione’s year before Hogwarts, which you can find at http://www.harrypotterfanfiction.com/viewstory.php?psid=278234 .
