J.K. Rowling fans are on the edge of their seats as they await the arrival of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” - dubbed the last in a seven-book series of stories centered on the boy wizard.
And Brewton fans won't have to travel out of town to get their fix of the latest release Saturday.
Blackman said the distributor who delivers books for Wal-Mart has indicated she will be on hand at midnight in Crestview or Milton on the day of release to put the books out the moment the debut is to take place.
For those who aren't able to make the purchase at the retail center, the book will be available on a limited basis at the Brewton Public Library.
Walker said two compact discs and one audiocassette will be available as well as two printed versions of the book.
Walker said fans of Harry Potter range in age and represent a wide variety of backgrounds.
Walker said she enjoys the books somewhat and is anxious about how this one will end.
As an avid fan of the books and the movies that have already been released, Lisa Hardy is eagerly awaiting the release of the book.
Hardy said many people are misguided about the meanings behind the book and should give the series some serious consideration.
Hardy said the book's author has kept a grip on who her main audience is and has written books in the series with maturity equal to her readers.
Hardy said she will miss looking forward to the release of a new book in the series every couple of years.
The newest and final book in the series written by Rowling has garnered much attention and much speculation on how the end of the series would be handled.
