Kicking off the weekend will be a talk by the one and only, James Taylor!
How Sideshow History Got Made - A Spiel by James Taylor on the Publication of the 'Shocked and Amazed! Collectors Edition'
James Taylor has been called “the world’s foremost authority on sideshow” c/o his Shocked and Amazed! On & Off the Midway, the world’s only periodical on contemporary and historical sideshow, novelty and variety exhibition. He has been covering “the other entertainment” for over two decades and has been featured in all major broadcast and print media worldwide for his work in that field. He is also the co-founder of Baltimore’s American Dime Museum and Washington, DC’s Palace of Wonders. And, as the sideshow spirit moves him, he writes for the Huffington Post and has been a frequent columnist for Ripley's Radio.
