A Harry Situation by Expat
If you are a Harry Potter fan, Coquitlam, British Columbia was the place to be last Thursday!
Fourteen copies of the new Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, were inadvertently sold from Coquitlam's Great Canadian Superstore by an employee who was unaware of the security surrounding the book. The sale sparked the books publisher, Raincoast Books, to seek a court injunction that forbids copying or disclosing any part of the book before 12:01 a.m. on July 16, the day of the book's formal release.
Store management is now scrambling to locate the books, offering those customers who bought them to return the books in exchange for an autographed book plate and a T-shirt.
