Budding essayist wins Harry Potter contest

Kiah Walker recently won a Harry Potter essay contest, sponsored by Gibson's Bookstore on Main Street. Kiah waxed poetic on her feelings on Snape, the potions professor at Hogwarts School of Magic. Is he good, evil, or somewhere in between? Kiah examines the question in her essay below, for which she took home a limited edition copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The Two Halves of the Half-Blood Prince

Severus Snape, the self-proclaimed Half-Blood Prince, is perhaps J.K. Rowling


We received a lot of very fine essays. Congratulations to Kiah for taking first prize! And we hope everyone had a great time at our party--we sure did--and is enjoying the book.
