J.K. Rowling has released a stunning new short story, over 5000 words, on the history of the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in America. The story draws on the deeply ingrained themes we grew to love in the Harry Potter series; the evils of bigotry, the power of love and the strength of friendship despite cultural differences. I hope there is plenty more where this story came from, because the history of the American wizarding community has proved to be fascinating so far. You can also get sorted into your very own Ilvermorny house (Pukwudgie rules!). Watch the video below and follow the links to read all about the founder of Ilvermorny house, Isolt Sayre.
