The response to the COVID-19 pandemic by Durham and our community has been swift and remarkable. DCA established this site in mid March to address immediate needs as we transitioned to the stay-at-home orders.
As the community has adjusted to the “new normal” the demand for urgent informational resources has waned. As a result, this site will be retired on July 1, 2020. If you have questions about our office or our work, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

so many of us still staying at home, we are asking friends from the Wizarding World and beyond to read all seventeen chapters of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone for us.
Some of the best-loved faces from global entertainment, music and sport have lent their voices to the story they love by recording videos of themselves reading the timeless first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone.
We, alongside J.K. Rowling, have announced seven of those readers from the stellar line-up today.
Excitingly, Daniel Radcliffe, Stephen Fry, David Beckham, Dakota Fanning, Claudia Kim, Noma Dumezweni, and Eddie Redmayne are amongst the cast of narrators, with more surprises and special appearances from across the Wizarding World and beyond to come. Each will be reading different sections of this iconic book – with its themes of family, friendship, courage and overcoming adversity – to families around the world.
