Local Myths & Legends
, Red Hook, NY, 10/22/2015
Author Thomm Quackenbush discusses some of the more verifiable, yet strangest, stories of our area.
Included is the Legend of Leatherman, a vagrant who was said to wander in a 360 mile circuit every thirty days for decades - while completely covered in a suit made of recovered shoe leather.
The Greater Hudson Valley UFO flap of the 1980s, and the first legally verified haunted house will also be discussed.
And who knows what else??
We'll see you at the cafe!

is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon
publishes three novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows
, Danse Macabre
, and Artificial Gods
). His fourth book in the Night's Dream series, Flies to Wanton Boys
, is due shortly. He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. He finds that friends do not enjoy the extremes he goes to in order to research books, as these involve mortuaries and UFO support groups. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
