Harry Potter Trio Featured on ALA READ Posters

Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint are featured on a new trio of American Library Association READ posters. They are each holding their favorite book–Radcliffe holds Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita, Watson has Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and Grint holds A Clockwork Orange. And there lies the controversy.

Type “Rupert Grint Clockwork Orange” into a search engine and you’ll find many results that claim he’s encouraging children to read the violent, controversial book. His representative downplayed these claims and said, “He was asked his favourite book – he isn’t suggesting other people read it – he is just supporting the initiative.”

The posters are available for pre-order in the ALA store until October 15th. You can try to win one of the posters or another prize by answering Harry Potter trivia questions on the ALA Graphics Facebook page.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the first of the two part finale, will be in theaters on November 19th.
