It has come to The Thrill’s very disappointed attention that the event, “A Reading by Maggie Smith” on September 15th will not actually be with Maggie Smith. Well, kind of. It turns out that there is more than one woman to the name, and the one reading at Kenyon this Tuesday is not Professor McGonagall or the Dowager Countess.
While we’re sure that the reading with the authoress will be stimulating, we couldn’t help but feel that The Kenyon Review had played a cruel trick on Kenyon’s Harry Potter and Downton Abbey super-fans. And by that, we mean the entire student body.
