John Lenahan – magician, comedian and author – will be touring the Waterstone’s shops in and around the Thames Valley and M4 corridor during the Easter holidays. At each stop on the tour he will wow the customers, and booksellers, with a magic show and will also sign a few copies of his book Shadowmagic.
The book is a very funny fantasy adventure for kids, although plenty of grown ups have declared themselves as fans as well.
If you haven’t seen John do his thing and are going to be anywhere near the following locations I really do recommend you try to get along. His close-up magic is amazing and he can talk pretty much anyone into buying a copy of his book. He can shift 30, 40, 50 copies in a couple of hours. Both feats are quite something to behold.

Check out the relevant Waterstone’s branch for times. And if you do go along see if you can get him to do the trick where he takes a lighter to a copy of his book.
