About the Class

David Jaher is the author of the new book, "The Witch of Lime Street: Séance, Seduction and Houdini in the Spirit World." Set in the United States in the 1920s, the book has been called a "textured account" of the rivalry between Harry Houdini and the controversial medium Margery. A review on the US-based National Public Radio (NPR) called it "utterly spellbinding,." Witch of Lime Street is a decade-long history that blends magician and skeptic Harry Houdini with the rise of spiritualism and an investigation by a committee of the periodical, Scientific American into a well-told, fast-paced narrative that rests on deep research. Jaher will talk about the book, and his process, with time left over for some questions and answers.
