Loren Coleman, America's foremost cryptozoologist, has spent the last five decades hunting for evidence of legendary creatures in our midst. Sure, these unexplained animals may just be figments of our imagination, but the same was once said of mountain gorillas, okapis, and komodo dragons. Is he chasing the impossible, or have the world's last wonders yet to be found?
Please join Institute Library members and host Josh Foer for a conversation with Mr. Coleman Tuesday, January 15, at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:30. Beer and wine will be available for purchase ($5 per drink), complimentary light refreshments will be provided by Atticus Books, and collectible limited editions of posters signed by Loren Coleman, Josh Foer, and Jack Hitt will be available for sale following the event.
Amateur Hour, the Institute Library's new monthly series curated by Joshua Foer and Jack Hitt, explores the passions and pursuits of America's most inspiring fanatics, obsessives, tinkerers, and collectors.
Tickets are $8 for Institute Library members and $12 for non-members. To become a member of the Institute Library for the modest annual fee of $25, please join online, and to learn more about the library, please visit our web site, blog, or facebook page today.
