JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center will present "The Magic of David Garrard" Monday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m.

A fantastic, charming entertainer that audiences of all ages can appreciate, David Garrard‘s mix of magic and message has made him popular with audiences throughout the United States since 1970.  His repertoire includes stage magic, close-up miracles with cards and coins, and even large-scale illusions . . . all guaranteed to provide mystery, laughter and fun.

Garrard is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (Order of Merlin), the Society of American Magicians, and the Louisville Magic Club, and was minister of children at St. Matthews Baptist Church in Louisville, Ky.  He has recently retired, and now has more time for his second love, magic.  Garrard has published a book of his magic, "Out of My Hat, The Magic of David Garrard."
