Magician will spend summer in libraries


Best Bet

July 04, 2002|By Sandy Alexander

Mike Rose first learned magic by reading the books in his school and local libraries. Now a veteran magician, he's visiting libraries in Baltimore County to share his comedy, sleight-of-hand and mind-reading skills and interactive tricks with young patrons. He'll appear at the Towson Library on Tuesday, at the Arbutus Branch Library on Wednesday and at other branches throughout the summer.

Rose, who still loves to read about magic, has a personal library of more than 1,600 magic books. He encourages children to read as much as he does, and in his library appearances, he'll be incorporating fun information about travel and transportation into his act to tie in with the statewide "Race to Read" summer-reading theme.

Rose will appear at the Towson Library, 320 York Road, at 2 p.m. Tuesday and the Arbutus Branch Library, 1581 Sulphur Spring Road, at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Free tickets are required; get them by visiting the libraries or by calling 410-887-6166 (Towson) or 410-887-1451 (Arbutus).
