Mr. Norm enjoyed bringing his program to the Barnes & Nobel in Roseville and doing a presentation with Best selling children’s author Nancy Carlson.  After the presentation they both autographed books and spent time with the families.

Minnesota Magician at Chaska Library

Here is the Amazing and Fun – Reading Magic Show at Chaska Library in July. Over 200 were in attendance for this fun program to encourage reading.

Waconia Library August 2 2019 (153)

Annalisa Bragg gave this 5 star review on Google after seeing the Reading Magic Show at Watertown Library.

“Saw Magic Norm at the Watertown library program – he was great! Norm provided a magical performance with:
●fun staging,
●clean and appropriate jokes (even for adults),
●a genuine interest in kids and literacy (he’s published many books on magic that are all user friendly and available at the library )
●an interest in engaging kids in magic, both in his show and helping them learn magic on their own
●professionalism, generosity and kindness.
Thanks, Norm, for a wonderful, magical experience!”

Norm says, “It is so fun to hear the laughter at the shows and I love to encourage children to read.”

 

Here is the Minnesota Magician delighting a crowd of over 150 children at the Waconia Library. Its a fun filled magic show for families that has wacky humor and amazing tricks.

Minnesota Magician entertains at Waconia Library

Magic shows are fun for every one.  This Minnesota Magician takes his program on the road to libraries all this week across Carver County.  He did two Magic shows in Chanhassen on Tuesday and two magic trick shows in Chaska at the library on Wednesday.

The goal of the presentation is to encourage reading and get kids excited about going to the library.  “You can find books about hobbies, interests and jobs.”

The funny magic show is titled “The Reading Magician” and has appeared at hundreds of libraries over the past 30 years.  It is fun for library summer reading programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

K. The Associate Librarian wrote a nice note… “Norm’s magic was wonderful. The kids were talking about it as they were checking out the books.”

Its Comedy Family Magician – Mr. Norm and friends at Waconia Library.

Motivating young readers has been my goal for many years as I toured across the US doing programs for high schools and elementary schools in all fifty states.  This week it is nine shows at libraries to promote reading.

Each magic trick has a reading emphasis.  The kids laugh as they learn.  It is very fun for schools or other family groups.  Please check out the website Magician-Minneapolis.com

Reading Magic Show for Libraries in Minnesota & Wisconsin

Ready Set Read Magic Poster RM

I am a Minnesota Magician who promotes reading at schools and libraries.

It is fun to travel around and bring this motivational reading program to schools and libraries in Minnesota.   I developed this program over 30 years ago and presented it in schools across the U.S> in all fifty states.

These tours of schools were called lyceums. Other programs on these tours included musicians, archers, athletic experts, jugglers, history programs and exotic animal presentations such as nocturnal animals.  I did over 350 magic shows a year for 14 years.

Some tours were in New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Virginia and then the next year I would present in California, Oregon and Washington State.  It was fun to see the country and this was great experience as I tried out new material and built a tight, quality program for schools.

We are set this summer for several libraries in MN and Wisconsin with this magic and Reading presentation.  This Friday I return to an elementary school in Maple Grove to bring laughter and share my love of reading with the children.  E

Every magic trick in the show is about books, reading or how reading helps with hobbies and jobs.   I want to motivate and encourage the students with this lively presentation.  I am a magician and entertainer in Minneapolis and use the magic to motivate.

Here is what several librarians have said about the magical presentation.

  “The show was great – looking forward to next year.” Pat Spencer – Eagle Bluff School – Onalaska, WI (performed here 9 times.)

 

“MagicNorm performed for the Mabel Public Library summer reading program. It was a very enjoyable experience for the kids and the adults. He included several of the kids as assistants and they absolutely loved the experience. Lots of laughs! Great job! “     Mabel, MN public Library – Children’s Librarian – L. Hoff

This library in Wisconsin had the magic show 5 times over the past 10 years. The librarian commented – –

  “THANK YOU so very much for coming to St Croix Falls Library, we definitely will have you back!”              Cole – Children’s Librarian! St Croix Falls, WI Library

I will be bringing the magic show to southern Minnesota again this summer and one school in Janesville, MN had this to say…

     “Norm incorporated fun and laughter for all ages. We completely enjoyed his performance!! Students and staff left the auditorium talking about the awesome show!! Thank you Norm!!!.”
Sherry Trahms – Elementary Principal, Janesville-Waldorph-Pemberton Elementary School
