As Final Film Is Released, Pottermania Persists In Chattanooga

Garrett Crowe and Mike Miller explore the lasting legacy of the Harry Potter series by talking to hardcore fans and a couple of Potter scholars in Chattanooga and throughout the Southeast.

 

They talk to:

OJ Morgan, Headmaster of the Bright School, whose Pottermania literally sent him up a roof

Lauren Turner, a fan who has her own wand (and duels with it at Potter conventions)

Dr. Abbie Ventura, a University of Tennessee at Chattanooga professor who teaches young adult literature classes and talks about the literary merits of Rowling’s work

Layton Jackson, who is one of the rare fans who started reading the series before it was a huge phenomenon

Dr. Amy Sturgis, a professor at Lenoir Rhyne University, who writes books and articles about science fiction/fantasy topics and who gives presentations about Harry Potter at sci fi and literary conventions.
