David Jaher at the Morbid Anatomy Museum

David Jaher, author of the excellent The Witch of Lime Street: Séance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World, will be giving an illustrated lecture on the topic of Houdini, Margery, and the spirits at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn tomorrow, April 11 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased HERE.

Last year it was announced that STX Entertainment had purchased the movie rights to David's book and that development had begun on a film to be directed by Andres Muschietti. Hoping to get an update on that soon. I'm also thinking we should expect a paperback edition of the book this year?

The Morbid Antony Museum is located at 424A 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215. More details at their official website.



  1. I attended a lecture on the history of mesmerism at the Morbid Anatomy Museum last year. Pretty good lecture, but I sure hope they've upgraded those seats in the basement workshop/lecture theater.

    1. Hard seats? Bring a pillow to sit on. Seriously. That's an issue at the Hollywood Heritage museum. Wonderful lectures, but very hard seats. I see regulars bringing pillows all the time. It's a good idea.
