Dr. Ernest Drake, Creator Of The Ologies Series To Appear At <br />The Kansas City Public Library

On Sunday, September 14, at 1:30 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St., the Kansas City Public Library, in association with Reading Reptile, presents Dugald Steer as Dr. Ernest Drake, creator of the Ologies series.

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.

Admission is free. Call 816.701.3407 to indicate your interest in attending or you may do so online.
