Magician Curtis Hed will once again be presenting his Magic of Reading Show in conjunction with the Kansas City Public Libraries summer reading program.

Curtis’s show includes Magic, Comedy, some Juggle, and Duo the Dove. As for the show itself, it’s one of those rare presentations that is as enjoyable for the adults as it is for the kids. Like one of those good kid movies where the kids enjoy the show on one level and the adults on another, only unlike kid’s movie it’s live and it doesn’t have chase scene, a bad guy, or a talking donkey.

Betty Ford is known for her battles with breast cancer and substance abuse. But perhaps even more than these struggles, says biographer John Robert Greene, she is remembered as a paragon of candor and courage, an outspoken first lady whose public positions did not always conform to those of her husband.

John Robert Greene is the Schupf Professor of History and Humanities at Cazenovia College and author of Betty Ford: Candor and Courage in the White House.
