Magic's bad boy, Penn Jillette, will be "in conversation" with WNPR personality Colin McEnroe at the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford on Halloween night, Oct. 31 at 7 p.m.

The illusionist, comedian, musician, actor, and best-selling author is perhaps best known for his work with fellow magician Teller in the team Penn & Teller.

The event will not be a magic show but he'll talk about his career, TV show and new book,  "Every Day  Is an Atheist Holiday." A book signing will follow the event. 

Tickets are $35; $30 for Mark Twain House & Museum members. Information: 860-280-3130.
