Book of the Month: The Jersey Devil by James F. McCloy

Book Abstract:

“This book will tell you just about everything there is to know about the history of The Jersey (or Leeds) Devil and its countless sightings in and around the Garden State. The biggest compliment I can give is that I did not want the book to end, I wanted to know more about this folklore legend and its various sightings over the last two hundred or so years.” (Amazon Book Review) Please join us for a conversation about the Jersey Devil with author James McCloy.
