Personal Narratives and Identity As Fans in a Post-JK Rowling World with Jackson Bird

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What are you left with when a fictional world is an inextricable part of your own personal narrative, but that world's creator is no longer a safe, welcoming figure?
