Fort Knox is a beautiful setting, about 2.5 hours drive north of Portland, Maine. I will give an hour long talk/Q&A at next weekend’s event there, usually outdoors with artifacts, props and exhibits from my museum. When not doing that, I’ll entertain questions about cryptozoology and Bigfoot at my display table, sign books you bring for me to autograph, and sell a few books. If in Maine, come stop by and chat.
Here’s the official description from the old historic fort’s website:
July 5th and 6th, 2008.
Meet with people who believe in things unusual. This unique event features renowned crytozoologist and author, Loren Coleman (often seen on the History and Travel Channel) [on the 5th only], psychics, ghost hunters, UFOologists and dowsers. Regular Fort admission and a $2 event donation requested.
Directions -> see bottom of here.
Fort Knox FAQ (admission, hours, passes, discounts, etc.)
If allowed by the Fort Knox folks, I will have a collection jar at my table to secure donations for the “Save the Museum” effort. (IMPORTANT: Easy-to-use donation buttons are now available here.) Thanks everyone!
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
