Black belt magician and “Creative Conjuror” Jeff Evans visits your library to celebrate the Summer Reading Program. His wacky inventions, amazing toys, and magical mayhem grab attention and open minds.
It's a wheelbarrow of excitement and the unexpected. Most importantly, the benefits of reading are woven throughout the show. When kids see the ideas Jeff gleans from books at the library, they’ll be anxious to try the “magic numbers” of the Dewey Decimal system for themselves!
Want to attend a show? I update my blog with upcoming public performances. You can also visit your local library website and do a search for my programs. (Look for my name under "Summer Reading Programs" or "For Kids" or "Youth Programs.")
Angela Nolet with the Redmond Regional Library videotaped part of my show and created a Youtube video. Thanks, Angela! The boy who helped with the card trick was a hoot (watch and you'll see what I mean.) You can check out other King County Library System videos at their Youtube page.
Dear Youth Services Librarian,
As you know, the 2009 Summer Reading Program theme is "Be Creative @ Your Library." Here's the show you've been looking for!
My forty-five minute Creativity & Conjuring Magic Show is recommended for ages 5-12. I travel with my own portable sound system, tables, and everything for the show. I even bring cones to create a "stage" and you get a fun-to-read introduction. I promise your job will be easy and hassle-free. (But, you still get credit for planning a top-notch program!)
To save time, my calendar is online at www.amazementproductions.com/calendar.html. I update it occasionally, so be sure to call or e-mail me so I can confirm that the date and time you need is good.
Call me in Olympia at (360) 412-5064 or toll-free (877) 412-5064 for rates and booking info. Or, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, save money when you block-book with another branch. (This e-mail goes to a broad geographic area, so ask for pricing info.)
I look forward to sharing creative magic and the fun and thrill of reading books with your patrons this summer!
P. S. Want more information about my library programs? See reviews, photos, and learn why librarians invite me back year after year at www.edumazement.com/libraries.html.
P. P. S. My summer is always extremely busy. Don't let everyone else have all of the fun!
“I wish I could give you a million dollars per performance. You give way more than 100% to every single performance. Our entire staff breathes a sigh of relief before your programs, because we always know they will be stellar. You are truly an amazing magician and an extraordinary professional.”
-Ellen Duffy, Timberland Regional Library
“It is wonderful to work with such a professional, flexible performer who is loved by our patrons! Makes our job SO much easier! Thanks for being a great ambassador for libraries and reading.”
-Anita Sheneberger, Peninsula Library
“Thanks for a FANTASTIC program on Tuesday, Jeff!...once again, you rocked the house with your magical science!”
-Mynique Williams, Douglas-Truth Library
“Thank you so much for the always fantastic performances in Pacific County. We so appreciate your willingness to do three shows in one day! You absolutely made our Read Aloud this year.”
-Michelle Zilli, Naselle Timberland Library
“Every time you come over for a show, I wonder "can he possibly top the show he did for us before?" and every single time, you always come up with a fresh and new presentation. The real magic is making all those kids so happy... and also tossing in some fun educational facts along the way that are now filed somewhere in those young minds. You'll never know how much of an influence you've had on those kids--but you know it was a good influence.”
-Kate Pappas, Rainier Beach Library
