Summer Library Magic Shows NYC

NYC Children’s Magician Magic Evan Motivates Kids to Read

It’s summertime and I’m busy performing my popular Library Magic Show, “Abracadabra: Reading is Magic” at libraries across New York City.

This magic show is one of my personal favorites to perform. Why? Because I started learning magic at my local library when I was only 6 years old.

When I was 6, I took a trip to the  library that changed my life: I checked out a magic book.

As I read the book, I discovered the secrets to performing amazing magic tricks. I learned how to make things disappear, reappear, and float. I felt like I had been given access to a secret and awesome world that nobody else knew about.

I quickly realized that – with a little practice – I could impress my friends and family with the tricks I read about. This worked out well for me because – although I played sports and was involved in tons of extracurricular activities – I really wasn’t the “cool kid.”

Reading and magic gave me a chance to be cool (even for just a second!). Magic and reading have given me opportunities that I wouldn’t have otherwise had.  Magic helped me pay my bills when I was in college and graduate school. Magic and reading have allowed me to travel to different countries. And, most importantly, magic helped me impress the girl I wanted to marry (and did!).

If you’d like to see my  library magic show or want to schedule a school assembly, then check out my NYC Elementary School Assembly Reading Program.
