Detroit Jewish Book Fair – How Magicians Think
March 7 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Join Joshua Jay for some sleight of hand and a discussion of his new book, How Magicians Think: Misdirection, Deception, and Why Magic Matters.
There’s a saying “The door to magic is closed, but it’s not locked.” In How Magicians Think, professional magician and bestselling author Joshua Jay not only opens that door, he brings us inside and turns on the light, revealing the artistry, inside history, and fascinating traditions of a subject long shrouded in mystery. Written as a series of short, lively essays, How Magicians Think describes the making of illusions, the psychology behind them, and the characters who create them. But above all, he reveals the mindset behind the magic and what it’s like to practice an art that so many love yet so few understand.
