All tied up -- or knot!
Charles the Magician does a trick

Local Author  to demonstrate magic tricks at the UW Bookstore, 11:00am Saturday Sept 21, 2013.

Charles Kraus, local author, entertainer and lecturer, has a new book, The Teen Magician … that’s You!, written especially for 11-18 year olds. Both an overview of the magician’s world and a breezy guide to operating a birthday party magic show business, it introduces students to a stimulating hobby that can become a great source of income. 

The magician-author will be discussing the teen magic scene and will demonstrate a few tricks when he stops by the University of Washington Bookstore at 11:00 o’clock on Saturday, September 21, 2013.

Kraus has performed more than 10,000 shows, appeared on over 75 television programs, written for leading magician’s magazines, co-authored a guide to children’s parties, and published articles in major newspapers. As a teen, he won awards for his own magic routines.

“I started performing at children’s birthday parties when I was eleven. At the time, I didn’t realize that in addition to having a great deal  of fun, I was learning entrepreneurial skills – how to market my service, get publicity, deal with customers, and a lot more. Kids at birthday party shows were amazed by the tricks, and I was amazed by how much money I was able to earn.”

Kraus wants to pass along his performance knowledge and insights to a brand new generation of magicians.  He has provided teen magic workshops in libraries and schools throughout Washington, Oregon and California.  It was while giving these presentations that he decided it was time to write the book.

Great work Charles, for spreading the magic among our young citizens of tomorrow.
You can't beat a hobby like Magic to keep idle hands busy, as well as to teach self-discipline, a quality that needs to be promoted.
Thanks too, for the article.
Regards, Bob.
