An Evening With Authors Featuring B.J. Hollars
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25 • 5:30 - 8:30 PM
Enjoy the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of our festival authors with delicious food ahead of B.J. Hollars’s presentation: 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.
5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Meet some of our authors, enjoy a fall buffet and a cash bar, along with water and lemonade.
