Those of you who follow Harry Potter news closely may already know that J.K. Rowling has started releasing tantalizing tidbits about the history of magic around her Harry Potter world. Now, fans know the name of the North American school of magic--Ilvermorny--and where to retreat in the icy winters (I'd choose Brazil's wizarding institute, Castelobruxo).  

Today, Rowling published online the first in a series about North American magic, with more installments each day this week.  Enjoy!
