Join the Lopez Island Library Thursday, July 13th, 7:00PM at Lopez Center for Community and the Arts, as we host author, researcher and Humanities Washington Speaker, David George Gordon discussing Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth. For hundreds of years throughout the Northwest, people have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch—a hairy, eight- to ten-foot-tall hominid. Despite eyewitness sightings, some from the earliest humans in the Northwest, no scientifically accepted evidence has established the being’s existence. Author David George Gordon evaluates the data gathered about the legendary Northwest icon and explains how one can become an effective “citizen scientist” by gathering credible evidence that can be used to substantiate the Sasquatch’s status as either Man-Ape or Myth. He is a current Humanities Washington speaker and the author of The Sasquatch Seeker’s Field Manual: Using Citizen Science to Uncover North America’s Most Elusive Creature. An accomplished science interpreter, he has spoken at the American Museum of Natural History, The Philadelphia Academy of Sciences, Yale University, the Smithsonian Institution, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not. He has been interviewed by National Geographic, Time, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, and appeared as a guest on television shows that include The Late Late Show With James Corden, The View, and ABC’s Nightline. This special evening is sponsored by Friends of the Lopez Library and Humanities Washington. For more information contact the Lopez Island Library at 360-468-2265.
