Cryptozoology is the "science" of searching for legendary animals that might be real, like Bigfoot and the Yeti. But what most people don't know is that scientists have already proven the existence of some of these creatures and are searching for more! Join Lija as she gives a fun presentation on how she became a writer and cryptozoologist and why finding Bigfoot might actually be possible. She'll also talk about her books, The Cryptid Catcher and The Cryptid Keeper. Lija has been an invited speaker at the International Cryptozoology Conference and the Texas Bigfoot Conference and is always up to date on the latest cryptid research!
