From the Browser's Den:
Sunday, November 6


FREE PRIZES * BIG DISCOUNTS ON ALL MAGIC ALL DAY LONG * MINI MAGIC AUCTION * COFFEE & SNACKS * PARTY SANDWICHES * MAGIC TRIVIA QUIZ WITH BIG PRIZES * LEN COOPER MEMORIAL AWARD * BIRTHDAY CAKE

Dear Magic Friend,

All of us here at Browser's Den would like to personally invite you to attend our 41st store anniversary party.

Many of you have been customers of ours since the beginning back in 1975. We could not have done it without all of our dedicated customers both old and new. And in appreciation of this special relationship we have a full day of fun events planned for you.

This is also the day that we remember our founders Len and Bernice Cooper.

Jeff Pinsky purchased Browser's Den from Len and Bernice in 1995. Len passed away in 2003. And since then at each anniversary party we hand out in Len's memory a full set of eight Tarbell Course in Magic books to someone under 26 years of age who has shown a dedication to the art of magic.

Here's a taste of what he's got planned for next month:

(Rumour has it Shawn will also be back at the Magic Castle November 28th to December 4th, with a special lecture on Sunday December the 4th.  Shhhh... you didn't hear it from me.)

Toronto: Lawrence Hass lecture and workshop

From the The Sid Lorraine Hat & Rabbit Club (IBM Ring 17) Facebook page:
You really don't want to miss this one.

Upcoming lecture for October 6th:
Lawrence Hass
Performing Magic with More Impact

WORKSHOP:
October 8th, 1PM. Enrollment will be limited.

There is an essential difference between performances that create an experience of magic and those that feel like “a trick.” For nearly twenty years Lawrence Hass has been writing and teaching magicians about this difference to help them create better, more impactful magic. His new book on this subject, Inspirations: Performing Magic with Excellence, has been receiving extraordinary praise from master magicians, such as Lance Burton, Mac King, and Juan Tamariz.

In this lecture for magicians Larry will share several fundamental ideas for increasing the impact of your magic by performing and teaching a number of real-world routines from his professional repertoire—routines that typically astonish magicians as well! Among the topics to be covered are: audience involvement, deep method, improving conviction, opening the show, among others.
