In the children's book "Milo's Magic Hat Trick" by Jon Agee, Milo the magician learns a creative move from a bear and is granted success for his show.
Magicians Tom and Janet Verner of Lincoln, who have been performing together all over the world as Magicians Without Borders for the last eight years, started with magic shows in the refugee camps of Kosovo and Macedonia in 2001. Now the Verners bring the magic home in show is for all ages Aug. 11 at 2 p.m. at Holley Hall.
It was kindly supported by Bristol Friends of the Arts, Bristol American Legion, the Merchants, Chittenden, and Middlebury National Bank, and the Wells Mountain Foundation.
The event concludes Bristol's summer's Reading Program which has unleashed creativity in all age groups to LML, from painting puzzle pieces, creating art a la Eric Carle, cartooning with Stan Burdick, forming a "garage band" with local musicians, or going wild with colors and glue during weekly story hours. Multiple programs were geared towards young adults as well. Community members have given their time and talent to some of these workshops.
