Featured Items and Unsolicited Publicity for Ed...




From the September, 2002 issue of Parenting Magazine:





Excerpt from M-U-M Magazine, March, 2001, page 39:
SHARE THE MAGIC
Ed Popielarczyk, October Hero

Ed Popielarczyk, who is a member of Springfield Massachusetts Assembly 17, has been performing magic for over 18 years, fulltime for the past six. As you can see by the photo he works very well with kids- they all have fun.

For the past several years, in celebration of National Magic Week, Ed has generously donated magic kits to public libraries in western Massachusetts. Ed first became interested in magic in his youth as a result of reading magic books from the library in his town. This is his way of expressing his thanks to libraries forgiving him his start and of giving something back to his community. He has given away various brands of sets, including the Lance Burton magic set.

Ed's gifts have inspired the Western Massachusetts Regional Library Service to promote magic and National Magic Week among their libraries during the month of October. Through their Youth Services Newsletter they have shared various ways that librarians have used magic to stimulate kids to read books.

As a part of these activities the magic sets donated by Ed were given to young, aspiring magicians. And, in writing up these events in their regional newsletter, the Western Massachusetts Regional Library System named Ed Popielarczyk their "October Hero".

Not only do we report these events to salute member Ed Popielarczyk, we also want to encourage assemblies to consider providing library programs and displays, and perhaps even donating magic sets to libraries as Ed has done. Actually these need not be commercial sets. It is entirely possible to make up some simple magic kits with inexpensive props and instructions for tricks using everyday objects.
