Lit Magic 2020

“I don’t believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.”

~ J K Rowling

At CVV, we too believe in the magic of a good book.

That is precisely why, on 31 July 2020, when ‘the boy who lived’ turns 40, we wish to mark the occasion with a celebration of our love for books. After all, it is the perfect day—the birthday of Harry Potter and his creator, J. K. Rowling, the one who brought reading back in fashion.

Dear witches, wizards, muggles and squibs of the world,

The Potterheads of CVV and the Grantha Club 

jointly present

Lit Magic
a Banquet for Bookworms

We welcome all of you—the true blue believers, the uninitiated and the curious—to join us, as we celebrate the magic that is Literature.

Get your wands, scrolls, and quills out…

In the offing

Are you as level-headed as Harry in a challenge or more whimsical than Luna? Perhaps you are the brightest witch of your year just as Hermione was or maybe your imagination can give the Weasley twins a run for their money! The Triwizard Tournament this may not be but we do have something for every one of you.

Competitions for the aspiring champions (Cash prizes at stake!)

There is more. For the kindred spirits out there, we have many an activity planned for the festivities, for sheer fun and frolic.

Keep watching this space: and

Non-competitive events

From 24 to 31 July, one new activity will be released on social media each day to celebrate this event. We hope you take part enthusiastically in the merry-making.
