BJ Hollars MIDWESTERN STRANGE Reading w/ Reach Out & Read

BJ Hollers reads from his newest book MIDWESTERN STRANGE, investigating various oddities, & our fascination & delight with them.
$1 from each pint sold will be donated to Reach Out & Read Wisconsin.
Midwestern Strange chronicles B.J. Hollars’s exploration of the mythic, lesser-known oddities of flyover country. The mysteries, ranging from bipedal wolf sightings to run-ins with pancake-flipping space aliens to a lumberjack-inspired “Hodag hoax,” make this book a little bit X-Files, a little bit Ghostbusters, and a whole lot of Sherlock Holmes. Hollars’s quest is not to confirm or debunk these mysteries but rather to seek out these unexplained phenomena to understand how they complicate our worldview and to discover what truths might be gleaned by reexamining the facts in our “post-truth” era.
