We are starting off the week with David Charvet’s short documentary about Willard the Wizard. You can see more great magic videos from David on his YouTube page.

We are now into August, so summer is almost over. Many school teachers are returning to their classrooms already and the students won’t be far behind… if you are looking for one last convention to stretch out the summer don’t forget about the Great Southern Magic Collector’s & History Conference in Orlando this September 6th through the 8th. They’ll be lots to see and do (including a session with Willard the Wizard’s daughter) and you’ll be in Florida where it is a 99% guarantee it will still feel like summer! Get more information at the Magic-palooza site.

AISH.com recently ran a piece on Werner Reich, who learned his first magic trick from The Great Nivelli while the two men were prisoners in the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. He now performs for fundraisers and hospital patients.
