SPOKANE, Wash. - For decades people have wondered if there is something more than bears, cougars, deer and the rest of the standard woodland creatures lurking in the forests of the Inland Northwest.
Throughout the Northwest, people have reported encounters with the Sasquatch—a hairy, eight- to ten-foot-tall hominid—for hundreds of years. Yet except for a collection of large footprint casts and a sizable number of eyewitness accounts, no scientifically accepted evidence of its existence has been offered.
In May, Spokane County Library District is scheduled to host “Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?,” a Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau session with author David George Gordon.
During “Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?,” David George Gordon reviews the gathered data about the legendary Northwest icon and discusses the rules of critical thinking and the workings of the scientific method. Gordon also explains how one can become an effective “citizen scientist” and wants to hear from the audience about their tales and experiences with this mysterious creature.
People can attend “Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?” at the following libraries.
