Things that Go Bump When You Write
October 8, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Things that Go Bump When You Write: On Monsters, Martians, and the Search for the Truth in the Strange. Part memoir and part journalism, B.J. Hollars’ latest book, Midwestern Strange, offers a fascinating, funny, and quirky account of flyover folklore. By confronting monsters, Martians, and a cabinet of curiosities worth of strange phenomena in our own backyards, Hollars challenges readers to look beyond their presumptions and acknowledge that just because something is weird doesn’t mean it’s wrong. A little bit X-Files, a little bit Ghostbusters, and a whole lot of Sherlock Holmes, Hollars will describe his efforts to get to the bottom of many of our most tangled tales.
