He swings stuff, smashes stuff and makes hundreds of people suspend their disbelief with every show. Some feats of magic include: Melting objects through solid steel, making bowling balls appear, making money appear from a child volunteer, doing magic in "3D" and much more.

With visuals from the book’s original photographs by Roger Straus III, Howard will open a window into 19th century domestic and cultural history, revealing the life and times of the many individuals and families, both obscure and important, the politicians and generals, abolitionists and plantation owners, ordinary citizens and celebrated writers, who endured and survived the drama and tragedy of the conflict. Tickets for the Tea & Talk are $22 for advance reservations and $27 day of the event.  Reservations are highly recommended as seating is limited.  For information or reservations call Ventfort Hall at 413-637-3206 or visit info@gildedage.org.  The historical mansion is located at 104 Walker St.
