Houdini's in New York

I'm in New York City where tonight I'll introduce the PBS documentary Houdini (2000) with a short talk about "Houdini in New York" at the New-York Historical Society. This will kick off their Summer of Magic: Treasures from the David Copperfield Collection "Houdini Weekend." Hope to see you there!

I won't be updating the blog until I get home on Monday, so below is a collection of links to stories about Houdini in New York. These will give you a deeper dive into some of the things I'll mention during my talk, and also many things I will not. Because as I discovered in preparing this, "Houdini in New York" is a big subject! Enjoy.

Found him!

  1. Don't suppose anyone will be filming your talk or doing a Facebook Live :-) for those of us who sadly can`t make it.

    1. They did not. They said something about posting just audio. But without seeing the slides, I don't think you'd get much out of it -- no one wants me just yapping. :)
