Harry Potter and the Half-Witch Poet

Since I’ll be seeing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in IMAX 3D (!) one week from tonight (get your ticket and rally on the top floor of the 68th and Broadway AMC Loews at 9pm for the 10pm show on Thursday, July 23 if you want to join me), I will have to miss an evening of performances and readings hosted by Michele Carlo (part of her Get Lit! series) taking place at roughly the same time (7:30, Belleville Lounge, 332 5th Street at Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, F/R to Fourth Avenue/9th Street), for which poet Boni Joi is opening.

The weird part, though, is that I’ll be watching the story of someone raised by an adoptive mother who eventually discovers that the biological mother was a witch — and in all seriousness, that’s Boni’s real-life story as well, though her mom’s in Salem, not England.  If you don’t join me, maybe you can go hear her and learn more afterwards.
