Speaker: Ken Trombly
Ken Trombly is a passionate collector of memorabilia about the life of the most famous magician of all time, Harry Houdini. He will share some of his unique collection with us and tell fascinating stories about the “handcuff king and jailbreaker.“
Supplemented with an array of vintage material that he has assembled over the past 35 years, Ken will enchant us with tales about Ehrich Weiss, a humble rabbi’s son from Hungary who would reinvent himself to become one of the greatest superstars of all time.
The talk is free but a seat reservation is required. Click for info.
The Jewish Museum of Maryland's exhibition Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini runs through January 21, 2019. For more information and a full list of events (including my own talk on Nov. 4), visit their website.
