Malcolm Mitchell

We are throwing a huge party in celebration of the launch of Malcolm Mitchell's new picture book, The Magician's Hat! There will be magicians, an inspiring presentation by Malcolm, and some very special guests to congratulate Malcolm on his book launch! Malcolm will be reading his book, The Magician's Hat, answering questions from kids, and signing his book.

***Please Note: This is a literacy event, so no sports memorabilia, please.**

Tickets go on sale February 5th at 1:30pm, and include one (1) copy of The Magician's Hat and admission for two. One additional book for each ticket will be donated to Share the Magic Foundation. Ticket price is $20.90 and includes tax plus fees.

Super Bowl champion and literacy crusader Malcolm Mitchell presents the story of a magician who reveals an awe-inspiring treasure from his bag of tricks -- books that make every kid's dream come true!

This is not your typical afternoon at the library -- a magician invites kids to reach into his hat to pull out whatever they find when they dig down deep. Soon -- poof! -- each child comes away with something better than they could've imagined -- a book that helps them become whatever they want to be, and makes their dreams come true through pages and words, and the adventures that follow. But each child can't help but wonder, What's really making the magic happen?

"Malcolm Mitchell is changing the world through the power of reading." -- Dav Pilkey, bestselling creator of the Dog Man and Captain Underpants series

"The Magician's Hat will cast its spell on you!" -- Jeff Kinney, bestselling author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series

Author and New England Patriot, Malcolm Mitchell, considers his love of reading to be his greatest achievement. In 2016, he founded Share the Magic Foundation, with a sole purpose: to transform children's lives through literacy. The Foundation's goals are twofold: 1) to introduce book ownership to students in households where reading is not a priority and 2) to improve literacy among students with below grade-level reading skills.
