Next month I’ll be heading back to my hometown of Stamford, CT to perform at a benefit for the Ferguson Library. It’s an honor to be a part of this fantastic event, as Stamford’s public Ferguson Library is the place where I first discovered books on magic. In fact, several years after having worked my way through their titles on magic, the Library became the first meeting place for the Stamford assembly of the Society of Young Magicians. The first gathering was a mere six people, but we eventually became the charter members of the Assembly #42, which still thrives today almost 25 years later. You can visit them online at http://www.sym42.com. The founder of the assembly, Bill Andrews, became my mentor in magic and together with the other members of the group, we performed numerous shows at the Library for the public. I have many fond memories of the Library and urge those in the area to come out and support this wonderful Stamford institution.
The benefit for the Ferguson Library will be held on Thursday, April 25th at 6pm. There will be music, a live auction, and numerous local food vendors with samples of their best dishes.
