Dr. Gail Saltz and Brooke Rapaport 'On Harry Houdini'

Psychiatrist, author, and TV commentator Dr. Gail Saltz will be interviewing Brooke Kamin Rapaport, author of Houdini Art and Magic and curator at the Jewish Museum in New York, as part of her series examining psychological factors that have shaped the minds of larger-than-life historical figures. Their historical figure of choice: Houdini (of course!).

Some of the questions they will address: What drove this self-taught man? What was the meaning of disappearing and reappearing? Why was he consumed with debunking the spiritualist movement?

  1. Hmm...I wonder if she's read Bernard Meyer's book. Could be scary. ;)

  2. I'd love a report on this from anyone who's attending.
