Hang on for your weekly dose of paranormal news!
1)JK Rowlings has published a history of the American wizarding school, Ilvermorny, and it’s wonderful. It’s also free to read online, and is accompanied by a very cool video.
2) A Broom-Hilda movie is in the works, and from the article, it sounds like the running gag is America’s weight obsession.
3) Judith Illes is out with a new book, The Big Book of Practical Spells. Have you read it yet? Because the cover alone makes me want to buy.
4) ABC goes behind the scenes with a paranormal investigator. Does this mean the paranormal is more mainstream?
