(SULTAN, WA.) – Does Sasquatch (i.e., Bigfoot) actually live deep in the forests of the great northwest?
Throughout the Northwest, people have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch—a hairy, eight- to ten-foot-tall hominid—for hundreds of years.
Yet aside from a collection of large footprint casts and a sizable assemblage of eyewitness accounts, some attributable to the earliest humans in the Northwest, no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this legendary being’s existence.
But you’ll be able to find out much more about the northwest’s most mysterious creature when author David George Gordon comes to the Sultan Library March 24th from 10 am to 11 am to give a talk on the subject of Bigfoot.
Gordon evaluates the data gathered about the legendary Northwest icon, discusses the rules of critical thinking and the workings of the scientific method 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.
Attendees are encouraged to tell their tales and share their experiences with this mysterious creature.
Gordon’s appearance is supported by Friends of the Sultan Library and Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau.
