Thank you for your Alchemy/Magic program. The combination of science and magic worked very well. I am sure that some of our audience members went home and tried some of the tricks you taught them. My daughter is still doing the silver ball trick.
Kitty Schacht, Youth Librarian, Mansfield Public Library

"This was better than more than half of our other programs, music being the exception! You were wonderful; you made the science connection interesting and simple. We want 2 more copies of your book!"
Stephanie Wolflink, Head of Children's Services Winchester public Library
“Honestly? I wasn’t sure what to expect, but seeing happy faces exiting the program and ASKING for your book was great. I liked your home made set, very creative. You were our second most popular program, behind the Princesses! Sorry Ed.”
Jessica Block, Youth Services Taunton Public Library

Alchemy Laboratory Hatfield Library August 2018
Dear Ed the Wizard,

“That was the awesomest thing ever,” said my daughter, 7-year-old Hannah of East Longmeadow, at the conclusion of your alchemical demonstration today in Hatfield. Feel free to add this praise to your list of testimonials. I wish I had a science teacher as gifted as you when I (now 37) was younger. We went home and did the ladle illusion for family and friends, ad nauseum. Thanks for making the dog days fun and educational.

“Dear Katherine,
Me and my daughter Arya attended this workshop and we just loved it! The way it was conducted and delivered was awesome. I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the person who conducted the workshop. Unfortunately I couldn't remember his name.
Kindly convey the same on my behalf.” Thanks & Best Regards,
