Our fellow member (and recent Magician of the Year recipient) Joshua Jay has agreed to deliver a new lecture for Parent Assembly. This will include unpublished pieces as well as the routines he is known for. You’ll see an unpublished “tribute” routine to recently departed master magician David Roth, as well as card routines for parlor audiences, and the sleight-of-hand that has garnered Jay worldwide recognition in our industry. Jay will also discuss his latest publication, How Magicians Think, which is a book of essays on the art of magic available at bookstores worldwide.
