Feeling the Halloween spirit? Also join us on Thursday, October 27 for our annual pumpkin flotilla on the Harlem Meer!

Since starting magic at the young age of six, Rogue has been performing, teaching, and mentoring for the last 30 years! Featured on America’'s Got Talent in 2014 (his true claim to fame), Rogue has appeared in countless news programs, newspapers, magazines, online media, TV shows, and in the mass-appeal bio-pics Magic Man and Misdirection. Rogue has become a full-time performer, traveling all over the world fulfilling his passion, spreading his love of magic, and inspiring others to follow in his footsteps.

The New York Public Library has been an essential provider of free books, information, ideas, and education for all New Yorkers for more than 125 years. Founded in 1895, NYPL is the nation’s largest public library system, featuring 92 locations across the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island, including our world-renowned research centers at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
