Lizard Man Festival, June 8-10

I’ll be doing a presentation and book signing at the upcoming Lizard Man Festival in Bishopville, South Carolina. It’s a new cryptid event debuting this year! June 8-10.  I’ll talk about the history of this small town cryptid case and discuss the various theories based on the research I did for my 2013 book, “Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster.”

Here’s the website info:
