Houdini Among The Spirits, Oct. 18

Postby JohnCox » October 3rd, 2015, 4:26 pm

On Sunday, October 18, I will be giving a lecture called Houdini Among The Spirits at the CFI in Hollywood and Costa Mesa. The Hollywood talk is at 11:00 AM and the Costa Mesa talk at 4:30 PM. Here are the details:

Harry Houdini’s role as a skeptic and debunker of fraudulent spirit mediums is one of the most fascinating aspects of his remarkable career. Yet very few people understand the whole story. Was Houdini’s crusade really motivated by his mother’s death? What role did Sir Arthur Conan Doyle play? What really happened between Houdini and the notorious “Margery the Medium”? And what about the sensational claim that Houdini himself escaped the grave in 1929? Using photos, film clips and rare documentation, noted Houdini historian and blogger John Cox (wildabouthoudini.com) offers fresh insights and tells the story of how Houdini spent a lifetime among the spirits.
