Harry Potter, chess, and tarot

In October 2018, I had the privilege of giving a paper at the annual Harry Potter Conference, hosted by Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia.

My paper entitled “Harry Potter: a Fool and a King” focused on the presence of chess and tarot elements in the series — some hidden in the very structure of the story, others, more obvious, hidden in plain sight.
