Take Whatever Beauty You Can Find

Spooky Book Halloween Hangover Spectacular (featuring Kelsey Patterson and BJ Hollars)

November 5, 2019

Halloween has come and gone, but it's always the season for a good book, even a spooky or strange one.

In this episode, I talk with Kelsey Patterson and BJ Hollars. Kelsey is the Reader Services Specialist for the Sioux City Public Library. She leads the Open Book Club and is a co-host of The First Fifty Pages podcast. Kelsey and I talk about spooky or strange books, and she offers up some good ones.

BJ and I talk about his latest book, Midwestern Strange: Hunting Monsters, Martians, and the Weird in Flyover Country. It's a book that on its face dives into paranormal sightings (think werewolves, UFOs, and giant turtles), but as BJ explains in our conversation, "It's really a book about people."
