    Just in time for Halloween, Evergreen Museum & Library and magician David London present an evening of entertainment and supernatural scholarship sure to surprise, delight, and maybe even spook. 

     

    Formerly relegated to shadowy street corners and carnival tents, magic enjoyed increasing acceptance during the 19th century as wealthy Americans welcomed its practice into their parlors, studies, and drawing rooms—even sometimes encouraging their children to learn the craft through magic kits. Indeed, the Garrett family of Evergreen likely purchased one such kit for their three boys in the late 1880s. 

     

    Now, inspired by Evergreen's antique magic set and his own research into the history of 19th-century amusements, technology, and occult practices, magician and storyteller David London performs a show that weaves together social history and intriguing illusions to examine how magic cast its spell on a society that was at once skeptical and impressionable.
