The Conjuring Arts Research Center's outreach program, The Hocus Pocus Project, has been featured in a substantive New York Times article that appeared today on nytimes.com and is scheduled to run in print in Sunday's paper. Reporter John Leland visited two juvenile detention centers where conjurors David Roth, Ricky Smith, and Noah Levine teach magic to youngsters who are detained while awaiting trial. Hocus Pocus also runs programs in a veterans' hospital, two hospital sections for children, and a teen center. The organization has launched an online fundraising campaign through Indiegogo to support expansion of the program to additional locations.
