hp-ohio is a group for adult (ages 18 and up) Harry Potter fans. It is based in Ohio, but people from all states are welcome to join the group. hp-ohio was founded to build a sense of community among adult fans and provide opportunities for them to socialize, discuss the Harry Potter universe, and be generally nerdy together [1].
