Super Heroines, Etc. presents the latest in its monthly “In the Pub” series, this time with a Harry Potter theme — “Beware the Heir: Property and Ownership in Harry Potter.” Tracy Douglas, program coordinator for the St. Clair County Foreclosure Mediation Program, will discuss the property concepts that run through the British canon, from Beowulf to Austen and Tolkien, and the key battle in the Harry Potter series over the ownership of the Elder Wand. Through this, the series explores competing ideas of communal property versus private property. Games will be played, and cosplayers and creativity are encouraged.
