More about Your Vote Is Magic!
America’s premier female Illusionist, Lyn Dillies, adds another DIMENSION to her sparkling career: YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC!, the book based on the groundbreaking illusion she conjured up to deliver a powerful message to get out the vote. At a rally in New Bedford, Massachusetts before the 2008 Presidential election, Lyn produced a live elephant and a live donkey, (the two-party mascots) “out of thin air!” The illusion impressively delivered the non-partisan message that YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC! and prompted a large voter registration.
In the book that TELLS ALL (Almost) . . . Lyn REVEALS just how important your vote really is!
On a personal basis, Lyn describes HOW and WHY she created the illusion, overcoming seemingly daunting obstacles.
Challenges are nothing new to Lyn. She is well known for imaginative, unique programs and illusions. The book, YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC! emphasizes Lyn’s personal philosophy: With enough determination, anything is possible.
YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC! contains many visuals that enrich the story, including photos of the animal “stars” and the preparations for the illusion. There are provocative quotes about voting from famous folk; whimsical political cartoons; and an absorbing review of the successful woman’s suffrage movement.
As the title implies, it’s truly a MAGICAL COMBINATION of illusion and reality and delivers a colorful, persuasive message to first-time voters. This book will be happily passed along to NEW GENERATIONS of voters as they begin their journey to responsible citizenship.
