Official Houdini Seance 2015 will be held in San Francisco

The Official Houdini Seance 2015 will be held this year at the Brava Theater in San Francisco. This year's event is being hosted by magician Robert Strong in conjunction with Wonderfest, the Bay Area Skeptics, the Bay Area Science Festival, and the Pan-Pacific International Exposition. Says Robert:

"After being a magician for 30 years, I just found out that I am related to magic royalty. My great great uncle was The Great Rendar (Sidney Radner). After connecting with his son the past few moths, I have some very exciting news that will launch in about two weeks. Please do me a little favor and join the page The Official Houdini Seance and get ready for the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!"

San Francisco is a great choice for the 2015 seance. It was 100 years ago that Houdini and Hardeen famously played opposite each other in the city and in nearby Oakland. Houdini performed a suspended straitjacket escape and also performed an overboard box escape in the Bay. It was also on this trip that Harry and Bess met writer Jack London and his fetching wife Charmian, and we all know what came of that!

The Official Houdini Seance 2015 has an official Facebook page and a website (still under construction). Sounds like this could be a great one. We'll see if Houdini finds it good enough to attend!

Thanks to Dean Carnegie for the alert.
