14th Annual CFI Houdini Seance
October 31, 2010
Joe Nickell recently sat down with Director of CFI Libraries Tim Binga to hold the 14th Annual Center for Inquiry and the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry Houdini Séance.
While attempting to summon his spirit, the two discuss Houdini’s fascinating life and accomplishments. Binga describes some of the rare Houdini-related books and pamphlets CFI has in its collection—even some Nickell himself hadn't previously come across—and why they're an important part of the archive.
Harry Houdini (1874-1926) was a world-famous magician, escape artist, and skeptical investigator of the paranormal.
