Emelie recommends

Emelie has been working at The Learned Owl since her senior year in high school. Now, five years later, she's still unable to tear herself away from the shelves! An avid Harry Potter fan, Emelie is willing to jump into any fictional tale and run away with it. When (not) at The Learned Owl, Emelie can be found drinking coffee, writing, and knitting.
