While performing inexplicable feats of magic for millions around the world, he diligently reminded his audiences that he had no occult powers. However, when his mother, Cecelia Weisz, died; he turned to the supernatural in a desperate attempt to pull back the Veil and contact her. Houdini became a regular at seances, and psychic readings, usually finding con artists and fraud. Rolando Santos will look at the world of spiritualism that Harry Houdini encountered as he was : Pulling Back the Veil in Search of Cecelia.
