The Washington Symposium on Magic History

The Washington Symposium on Magic History is set for the weekend of April 25-27, 2013 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

The event is being hosted by Ken Trombly, a major magic and Houdini collector, and will of course feature some moments with our favorite Master Mystifier.

William Kalush, co-author of The Secret Life of Houdini and founder of the Conjuring Arts Research Center in New York, is scheduled to give a lecture on Houdini at the conference. There will also be "a private exhibit for our attendees only at the Library of Congress of some amazing relics of magic history from their Houdni and McManus Young Collections."

The event will honor two longtime friends of the magic community, Carl Williams and Nick Ruggiero.

  1. Just registered! Will you be there?

    1. I'd love to go, but I don't know. On a tight budget this year. We'll see.

  2. I'll be there. By the way, I've seen Ken's Houdini posters in person. Very impressive.
