Larry Lund, leading expert on the Sasquatch Phenomenon, will be presenting programs at the Sisters and Redmond Libraries on March 5 as part of the Celebrate Oregon Author Series. The Sisters programs begins at 12:00 noon and the Redmond program begins at 6:30 pm. Both are free and open to the public.
Lund has been giving talks and presentations all over the United States for 30 years. He has also been featured in several national and international TV shows, including Unsolved Mysteries on NBC. He has also taught several classes about Bigfoot at Portland Community College. Lund said he's still on the fence about the Sasquatch. He's spent close to 40 years investigating claims and studying evidence, much of which doesn't impress him. "We have Bigfoot sightings that go back as far as 1811," he said, "including Indian legends of sightings."
During his presentation, Lund will discuss the evidence both supporting and refuting the existence of Bigfoot. Lund’s presentations are part of the celebration of the Oregon Author Celebration begin offered throughout 2009. March celebrates Oregon author Molly Gloss, whose novel Wild Life tells the story of a woman taken in by a family of Bigfoot.
