Peekskill author and historian Margaret Steele will conduct an unusual magic program discussing her new book--Adelaide Herrmann, Queen of Magic...--on the life and legacy of world-famous magician Madame Herrmann who was associated with the Great Houdini.
Ms. Steele has lectured in the U.S. and abroad on Herrmann's place in history as a pioneering woman in the art of magic. Using on-screen photos illustrating Herrmann's long career, her presentation will be educational and "magical", especially her demonstration of some of Herrmann's magic tricks and illusions!
