Forget the Kardashians, “Making A Murderer,” or Super Bowl 50. What’s cooler than discussing bigfoot? Stop by Eastern Illinois University tonight for my discussion on bigfoot, researchers and “Monster Trek.” Sayeth the press release: “After six years traveling to five different states, journalism professor Joe Gisondi will be presenting a lecture about his adventures in his book, “Monster Trek: The Obsessive Search for Bigfoot,” at 6 p.m. on Thursday in the Buzzard Hall Auditorium.” We’ll have a blast. See you there.
Order “Monster Trek”
- Joe Gisondi brings to life the celebrities in bigfoot culture: people such as Matt Moneymaker, Jeff Meldrum, and Cliff Barackman, who explore remote wooded areas of the country for weeks at a time and spend thousands of dollars on infrared imagers, cameras, and high-end camping equipment. Pursuing the answer to why these seekers of bigfoot do what they do, Gisondi brings to the reader their most interesting—and in many cases, harrowing—expeditions.
