Mentalist Preston Heller Returns to the Library

October 9, 2018


We had so much fun at Mentalist Preston Heller’s last presentation that we’ve invited him back!

Tuesday, October 23rd, 7pm

Mr. Heller is a mentalist. What is a mentalist? A mentalist reads minds, projects thoughts to others, divines information held secret, and predicts results. See more at

This a family program, but recommended for ages 12 and up. It will last a little more than an hour.

Mr. Heller is not charging for this program, so there will be no charge to the public, but Mr. Heller requests that a donation be brought for the St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville. Thanks to all for doing this.

The show involves a lot of audience participation, because a spirit of cooperation is needed between the mentalist and the audience. So come on out for an evening of fine entertainment! I guarantee you will have a great time!

Matt grew up in New Ipswich. His father was a biology teacher and early on he was exposed to all types of animals. As far back as he can remember he has always had the same two interests, wildlife and art. He loves the outdoors and in his free time he was either out fishing, searching for turtles and snakes, or he was painting. Today things haven’t changed much. He is a professional artist and his work reflects his love for nature.

Matt has completed a variety of work ranging from scientific and book illustration to trompe l’oeil murals and wood carving. In 2010, his book titled Freshwater Fish of the Northeast won the National Outdoor Book Awards Design and Artistic Merit category.

His book on Reptiles and Amphibians, titled The Snake and the Salamander Reptiles and Amphibians from Maine to Virginia, was just released.

This program is sponsored by the Stearns-Burton Lecture Committee.

Although the event is free, a donation to St. Vincent dePaul’s Food Pantry in Greenville is always welcome.
