To end this year's Summer Reading Program, we will be hosting a phenomenal magician from Saskatoon, CurtIsMagic by Curtis Strauss!

This is Curtis Strauss.  He does magic tricks.  Some might say he is magic. 

How do audience members describe his show?  Real magic. Well, not actually real magic.  But that's what it can look like. He takes everyday items and creates unforgettable experiences using sleight of hand, psychology, misdirection, timing, comedy, audience interaction and a lovable charm.  These are not your uncle Bob's card tricks - these are moments you will remember for the rest of your life.

Check out Curtis Strauss and his show from August 23 - 25 at 5 Wheatland library locations. All ages welcome! Click here for details!
