HOAX: Bigfoot, Champ, the Loch Ness Monster and more!

Local author, Laura Martin, has a new book, Hoax for Hire, coming out on August 27th and we’re excited!  So excited, in fact, that we are bringing her to the Library to throw a HOAX launch event!

Martin will be sharing the bizarre research she did about Bigfoot, Champ, the Loch Ness Monster and the rest of the cryptid crew that appear between the pages.  Audience members will get to enjoy Bigfoot trail mix and test their own knowledge of weird and wacky with a cryptid quiz—prizes will be awarded!  Registration is open!

From the back cover…

Goonies meets the humor and heart of Gordon Korman in this new adventure full of nonstop action and spot-on humor from the critically acclaimed author of Float.

The McNeil family has always been professional hoaxers—tricking bystanders into believing they’re seeing legendary creatures like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. Unlike the rest of his family, twelve-year-old Grayson hates hoaxing and wants nothing to do with the business—even when the McNeils land a huge job and must pull off four sea monster hoaxes in a week. But when things go disastrously wrong and Dad and Gramps go missing, Grayson and his brother, Curtis, are the only people who can finish the job and save their family.

Be one of the first to purchase Hoax for Hire…it will be released the day of the event!  Martin’s books will be available to purchase at the event through 4Kids Books and Toys and she’ll be happy to sign books after the program!
