On Monday, March 4, at 5:30 p.m., the library will be hosting the Science Café at City Hall.  The event will feature Mike Familant’s Searching America Bigfoot Experience Tour 2024.

New Jersey native Familant will share his thirteen years of experiences researching and collecting evidence about North America’s most iconic cryptid, Bigfoot, also called Sasquatch, Grassman, Skunk Ape and Big Red Eye, among others.

From the Florida Swamps to the North Country of Maine and everywhere in between, Familant is the full-time, lead investigator and producer of the show, “In the Shadow of Big Red Eye.”

He will present evidence which he and his team have collected throughout his journey, as well as share some of the unfortunate experiences which come along with Bigfooting.

Those who wish to learn more about Familant, can view his docuseries, Squatchables, on his YouTube Channel, “Sussex County Bigfoot.” More information about the team’s expeditions is available on his Facebook page, “In the Shadow of Big Red Eye,” and at ShadowOfRedEye.com.

The evening session is free to the public and open to all ages.
