The Secret Life of Houdini:
The Making of America's First SuperHero.

Thursday, March 26th, 7:00pm

Since his death eighty-eight years ago, Harry Houdiniís life has been chronicled in books, in film, and on television. Renowned magic expert William Kalush will join us to discuss the man behind the myth, and a life based on deception. Drawing from millions of pages of research, he will discuss the passions that drove Houdini to perform ever-more-dangerous feats, his secret life as a spy, and a pernicious plot to subvert his legacy. In his book, The Secret Life of Houdini, Kalush traces the arc of the master magicianís life from desperate poverty to worldwide fameóhis legacy later threatened by a group of fanatical Spiritualists led by esteemed British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. William Kalush is the founder and Executive Director of Conjuring Arts Research Center in Manhattan, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of magic and its allied arts. ....more
