Dr. Ernest Drake
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24 and remain closed on Thursday, December 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday.
Dugald Steer as Dr. Ernest Drake discusses the Ologies series on Sunday, September 14, at 1:30 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.
To commemorate the anniversary of the release of Dragonology in 2003, Dr. Drake returns with a second major volume, a lavish exploration of fantastical beasts, from yetis to unicorns, in MONSTEROLOGY: The Complete Book of Monstrous Creatures.
Do krakens really lurk below the ocean waves? Do griffins command the air above? In a fascinating new discovery sure to rival the ground-breaking Dragonology, the intrepid Dr. Ernest Drake turns his inquisitive gaze from dragons to other so-called mythical creatures.
For anyone who has ever wondered whether legendary beasts still wander among us, this lush look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know.
The event is co-sponsored by Reading Reptile. Books will be available for purchase. The author will sign books but, due to publisher’s request, patrons are limited to bringing one book from home for signature.
