I had so much fun this last week presenting to students in Ohio and Pennsylvania and being one of the authors at the Lititz Kid-Lit Book Festival.
Presenting to students is one of my passions, and with AbrakaPOW, I get to use magic to teach storytelling and history. What a dream come true!
The crowd at Lititz was amazing and super engaged.
I love these two optical illusions which help me show how magic tricks work. Are you sure about what you are seeing? Is it a rabbit or a duck? Good or evil?
And, of course, bringing the magic is my all time favorite thing. This magic trick helps me tell the story of the POW escape in Texas. It's a lot of fun to do!
Besides getting to meet so many amazing new friends, I also got to see AbrakaPOW really find an audience, and that has made me happiest of all. I hope you have a chance to read AbrakaPOW!
By the way, if you are a teacher or librarian and you think your students would enjoy a presentation chock full of magic, history, story-telling, humor, and some weird guy who thinks comic books are a high form of art, let me know! I'd love to come visit you.
