Books! The Magic Is Real!
Just finished our two-day, five-show magic marathon with Brian Curry! We had 1,497 people fill our Library Theatre for 45 minutes of laughs and AMAZING magic tricks. And we librarians especially enjoyed that all of the tricks were based on our favorite things . . . BOOKS! If you would like to read any of the books that Brian used in his act, you're in luck. We have the master list!
