We will be adding a little bit of magic to the gray days of winter with a visit from author and magician Joshua Jay on Monday, February 9. He will be speaking to students in grades 1 – 3 about his book Big Magic for Little Hands. and performing magic tricks to awe and amaze his audience. What kid (or adult) does not enjoy a good magic show? This show may just inspire students to try being a magician.
A good place to start that career or create a hobby is with a good book about magic. Our friends at Nicola’s Books is sponsoring this visit and will have copies of the book for sale.
Joshua Jay is a master magician and was champion of the World Magic Seminar when he was just 16—nine years after learning his first magic tricks—which is why he specifically asked for audience of six– to nine-year-olds.
