September Lecture – “The Fourth Dimension” by Gary Brown, September 21st (7PM) @ Fantasma Magic New York (213 W35th Street, Suite 401, NYC 10001)

To kick off the SAM PA1-Society of American Magician’s 2018-2019 Lecture Series, we will feature a lecture and presentation by Gary Brown.

Gary is a magician, historian, writer, inventor and a United States Magistrate Judge.   His magic writings include The Coney Island Fakir, an award-winning biography about magic dealer Al Flosso, as well as articles about magic and related phenomena for The New York Times, American Heritage, Emmy, Invention & Technology, and a plethora of conjuring periodicals. He has appeared as a commentator on magic, gambling, deception and crime on The Discovery Channel, A&E, Court TV, and National Public Radio.  Gary has produced a half-dozen original magic effects which are currently being commercially marketed and have received outstanding reviews in magic publications. Gary will be offering “Tricks from the Fourth Dimension,” a lecture featured at this year’s IBM National Convention.  As part of that presentation, Gary will demonstrate, discuss and teach a series of effects used by 19th Century medium Henry Slade to baffle scientists, giving rise to the theory of the Fourth Dimension. These effects can be performed today with equal impact in a variety of settings. And, if the spirits are with us, he will attempt to bring back the spirit of Henry Slade, who may bring us a message from the great beyond….


September 21st, 2018.  Come a little earlier for some pizza and refreshments starting at 6pm. Lecture begins at 7pm.
