New Book About Houdini



Are you a fan of musicians, and Houdini in specific? If so, check out this article in Columbia Magazine about a 17-year-old kid who saw the famous magician Harry Houdini perform (born Eric Welsz in 1874) and afterward instigated a meeting in which he received encouragement from the magic master.


Houdini died in 1926, but the kid, Morris Young, went on to write HOUDINI'S FABULOUS MAGIC (the 4th ediction published by Vine Leaves Press) about how Houdini managed his various feats.


Young’s now-grown kids, who grew up with his love of magic, have written HOUDINI'S LAST HANDCUFFS, a fictional book about their upbringing in that magical environment in 1950s NYC. The book will be published next year on the 150th anniversary of Houdini’s birth.


So many interesting stories in the world!
