Appearing this week at the Magic Castle: ‘Newspaper Magic’ author Gene Anderson, hustler Chef Anton, and many more

October 31, 2017

Halloween festivities have taken over the Magic Castle for a few extra days this week, so the regular schedule’s a bit truncated as a result. There’s still a great week of magic planned though, including the close-up card and billiard hustle of Chef Anton, Dunninger Show Recreation creator Joe Atmore, and the man who literally wrote the landmark book on newspaper magic, Gene Anderson.
