Blaine was affiliated with the Library in 2006 when he served as a spokesperson for the statewide summer reading program, and he has spoken about the importance of libraries in his development as a magician. "My Mom was on her own and had to work several jobs, so I came here and read about Houdini and other magicians," Blaine said about his early use of the Brooklyn Public Library. "In this library, I got lost in the world of books and developed a love for magic."
Tickets for Blaine's appearance are $25 and go on sale Friday, February 20 at noon (Library members can buy in advance). They can be purchased at www.showclix.com/event/3928455/pre-sale.
