April Meeting Friday April 5 – Harvey Berg Lecture

Mar 15 2013 Published by under Uncategorized


Our Next Monthly Meeting will take place on Friday April 5, 2013.

The meeting will take place at:

The Goldwurm Auditorium Mt. Sinai Hospital 1425 Madison Avenue @ 98th street

Meeting will begin promptly at 7:15. The After meeting event will take place immediately after the conclusion of the regular business meeting.

Our after meeting event will be a lecture by our own Harvey Berg. Harvey’s lectures have been featured at the Mindvention events, and received rave reviews.


Harvey Berg is a mentalist, retired architect, structural engineer, college professor, and cruciverbalist (look it up). Since entering the world of magic at the age of 62 (seventeen years ago),
he has invented more than 100 original effects – some of them being regarded as the best of their kind by many mentalists and magicians.

The four effects to be shown in this lecture are very strong and very easy to do. They require no sleight of hand and are partially or wholly self working – and suitable for stage, parlor, and close-up. They could well be called the “bridal” collection.

See more details about Harveys lecture in the April Spellbinder!
