Meet the "Guests & Ghosts of 278" at the Magic Castle, Wednesday


This Wednesday, July 18, I will be presenting my "Guests & Ghosts of 278" talk at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. This is an abbreviated version of the talk I gave at the Magic Collectors Weekend in Chicago. It will be part of the Castle's regular Magician Member Meet-Up, this month hosted by Jon Armstrong.

The organizers of the MCW gave me special permission to share this talk/item with Castle members as thanks for the help the AMA gave me in my research. But this will be the last time I will be giving it, so this is your last chance to get a peek inside this remarkable Houdini family artifact.

So if you are a magician member of The Magic Castle, join us on Wednesday at 8PM in the Inner Circle for one last visit with the Guests & Ghosts of 278.

Hope to see you there!

  3. I saw John's presentation at the MCW and it was great! The story of the lady who lived on the top floor of Houdini's townhouse was quite interesting. The discussion of the signatures for the guestbook was also fascinating. I envy the folks who get to see John's talk at the Castle.

    1. Thanks Leo. Not sure I'm going to tell the story of the person who lived in 278 as I'm not sure how much time I'll have, but maybe I will. I will show the pics.
