While a thunderstorm and damaging winds were unfolding last night in Newcastle, I was online doing a presentation / lecture for the Victorian Magic Circle.
Monday, November 16, 2020
Before my presentation started, it was delightful to hear the Victorian magicians chatting among themselves with great excitement about the idea of meeting in person for their December / Christmas meeting (they have only been meeting on Zoom since March). To see a group that is in such great spirits after months of lockdown is really amazing.
My work was well received and I shall share (with permission) some comments that appeared on their "group chat":
"Love that subtlety!! I have never seen anything like that before...... Very nice!!!" - Jayden Rushby
"Great performance tips. Looking forward to seeing you perform in the flesh" - Gary Cohen

The DET are allowing school shows again! If you are involved with a School and would like information on my programs or wish to be added to my 2021 calendar please send me a PM or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bolwarra Public were very happy with their recent Incursion. Here is a note that I am sharing (with permission) from the Teacher Librarian:
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the fantastic Books Are Magic Show you presented to the children at Bolwarra P. S. last Thursday.
The children were thrilled, enthralled and super engaged (the teachers too). There were a lot of happy faces and memories made.
Your show certainly made the last few months of the COVID "problem" disappear for a little while.
Thank you so much,
