02:00 PM , January 26, 2020 | Watermark Books & Café
Watermark Books & Cafe will host local author Roger Ringer for a reading and signing of Eccentric Kansas on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 2:00 p.m. Kansas has tales as extraordinary as its plains, although the stories behind the legends are sometimes lost to time. Discover the history of the state's world-class violinist, homemade airplane and alleged volcano. Iola's Mad Bomber blew up the town's saloons after a hangover. The bulletproof and most "extinctest" creature lurked in sinkholes outside Inman. Hunters in Stafford County learned to leave out enormous quantities of food for local hermit Pelican Pete. Join author Roger Ringer as he delves into these and other facts behind the myths of the Sunflower State.
