A steamer trunk, a mysterious book, and a hat belonging to Harry Houdini begin THE MAGNIFICENT CIRCUS MYSTERY, an outrageous show filled with magic, juggling, unicycling, and comedy.
Kids will make clown bookmarks, as well as their own magical steamer trunks. Older kids will learn how to juggle plastic grocery store bags and how to make their own juggling balls!
Our author/illustrator this week is the incredible Tom Lichtenheld, who is perhaps best known for his illustrations of “Good Night, Good Night, Construction Site”, but he’s juggled many other projects over the years that he’ll tell us all about.
Our guest performer is world-renowned magician and Houdini historian, Jessica Jane Peterson (Penn & Teller’s Fool Me). Then we’ll take a virtual tour of the International Clown Hall of Fame in Baraboo Wisconsin.
Patrons of all six Okaloosa County libraries are invited to participate in this virtual program series. Registration is required; to register, please visit the Okaloosa County Summer Reading page.
