You read that right: the Central library is hosting a “wizard rock & nerd rock” jam session featuring Kirstyn Hippe, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Tonks & the Aurors. Kirstyn Hippe is an 18-year-old from Nashville who writes folksy songs about Harry Potter and growing up a nerd. She's like Taylor Swift, but more authentic and actually a true nerd. Justin Finch-Fletchley and the Sugar Quills (Rhode Island) and Tonks & the Aurors (Cincinnati) are both full bands dedicated to Harry Potter fandom and rocking out to celebrate the novel series.Haven’t plunged into the large and constantly multiplying genre of wizard rock yet? Monday holds your chance – and you can return those late while you’re at it. Yes, Mom, it’s a genre; yes, Mom, I promise I’ll return those books.
