Happy Birthday, Harry Houdini

One of the first biographies I remember reading as a kid was of Harry Houdini. His escapes and life totally fascinated me, and his life of magic continues to lure people in today.

The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero, William Kalush

Houdini: The Handcuff King, Jason Lutes

Final Seance: The Strange Friendship Between Houdini and Conan Doyle, Massimo Polidoro

Houdini! The Career of Ehrich Weiss, Kenneth Silverman

The Life and Many Deaths of Harry Houdini, Ruth Brandon

The Denver Public Library also has lots of great children's biographies of Houdini if you want to introduce your kids to this master of escapes!
