Why Magic?

Dr. Kerwin began performing magic 30 years ago. He began showing magic to his English students at Punahou School, out of which a magic club formed called “The Magic Mafia.” As the club sought venues to perform, Dr. K met local magicians like John Hirokawa and Curtis Kam. 

In 1991, Dr. Kerwin began directing Punahou’s Summer School program, where he and local magician Curtis Kam decided to develop a Magic Class. From there it became obvious that our students’ love of magic could be used as a learning fuel of sorts.


The Reading Company uses both its space at Coffee Talk in Kaimuki and its connections with Punahou School during the summer to host magic classes and camps for weeks at a time throughout the year. We are always setting up new classes; see what we have coming up below…
