GENE ANDERSON LECTURE
Our next Sunday afternoon lecture will be on April 29 at the Fort Hunter Fire Station. Gene Anderson will be our lecturer, and we are promoting this event as a magic lecture and book signing.
Two years ago, Mr Anderson completed GENE ANDERSON: THE BOOK. This 256 page hard cover book has glossy pages, 890 line drawings and photographs , and a bright red dust jacket. Dave McClements bought one at a convention. I have seen his, and it is beautiful. It is not cheap - $65.00, but it is worth the price. It includes all of the material Gene is currently performing and none of the material he has discarded. It is up-to-date and audience tested material that real “part-time pros” can and will use. Material from his book will be the subject of his lecture.
Mr Anderson will be selling and signing his book at the lecture, and it is the only thing he has to sell. I’m planning to buy my copy then. For more information about Gene Anderson and his book go to: http://www.geneanderson.com/
As usual, the cost of the lecture will be $20.00 with a $5.00 discount for early registration (checks to be received on or before Saturday, April 22.) Plus there is another $5.00 discount is for paid members of Assembly 24.
