Scranton Houdini Museum announces the Original Houdini Seance, 2011

October is just around the corner and you know what that means -- seance season! First out of the gate is The Houdini Museum in Scranton, PA, who have announced their "Original Houdini Seance" to begin at 12:30PM this Halloween.

The seance will be attended by Jeff Blood and members of the (Marie) Blood family, and will also feature a special lecture by one of magic's greatest inventors and minds, Devin Knight (the seance is free but there is a charge for the lecture).

The Houdini Museum in Scranton traces the linage of their seance back to Walter B. Gibson, who handed off the tradition to magician and museum curator Dorothy Dietrich before his death. Gibson, who was Houdini's friend and ghost writer (and creator of The Shadow), was reportedly asked to carry on the annual seances by Bess Houdini, so this indeed can be considered the "Original Houdini Seance."
