Erin Callahan's hit new novel "The Art of Escaping" was inspired by pioneer escape artists Houdini and "Female Houdini" Dorothy Dietrich. Dietrich is mentioned several times in her novel. The book's on one of Barnes and Nobles Most Anticipated Books of 2018 lists, Kirkus gave it a Starred Review and is an Amazon 4+ star rated book.

Her book centers on 17-year-old Mattie, who is hiding her obsession with Houdini and Dorothy Dietrich from her classmates. Callahan wrote the book following an ongoing fascination with Dorothy Dietrich. "I'm honored to inspire a story like this," Dietrich says. "There's a generation of young people who may not know about Houdini, and escapology, but I think we're helping keep that art and history alive."

This reminds me of the time in Jr High(middle school??) in 1950 - my english teacher had us read a book - I read Houdini from scalastic books - we were to cast a Movie of the book - using current Stars - I cast Tony Curtis and Janet as Houdini & Bess - several years later the Houdini Movie came out staring Tony and Janet - Have an autographed Photo from Tony.
