The Youth Department will host a Book Party for Brian Selznick’s The Houdini Box on Wednesday, November 13 from 4-5pm.
The Houdini Box tells the story of young Victor, who is forever trying to escape from locked trunks, walk through walls, and perform any number of Houdini’s astonishing magic tricks…without success. One day, Victor meets his idol and begs Houdini to explain himself. A mysterious locked box is the magician’s only answer and Victor is left to wonder: Does the box contain the secrets to the most famous magic tricks ever performed?
The book party is for grades 2 and up. Those who have read The Houdini Box and would like to attend can register here.
