HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Aug. 23, 2018 - PRLog -- Books-A-Million to Host Book Signing for Alabama Lore

Local author Wil Elrick will be available to sign copies of book


Alabama is a weird and wonderful place with a colorful history steeped in folk tales passed from generation to generation. Mysterious 1989 UFO sightings brought more than 4,000 visitors to the tiny town of Fyffe, population 1,300. Legends of the Alabama White Thang—an elusive, hairy creature with a shrill shriek—persisted in the state for a century. Just outside Huntsville's historic Maple Hill Cemetery lies an eerie playground where the ghosts of departed children are rumored to play in the dead of night. After hundreds of unexplained sightings, the town of Evergreen declared itself the Bigfoot Capital of Alabama. Join author Wil Elrick as he explores the history behind some of the Cotton State's favorite tales.

About the Author:

Wil Elrick hails from Guntersville in the northeastern part of Alabama. He is a writer and "weirdologist" who loves telling stories, whether as a tour guide to historic Huntsville or with friends around a campfire. He can often be found "off the beaten path" researching historical, weird or unusual tales. From time to time, he can even be found participating in a ghost investigation, a Bigfoot hunt or a search for buried treasure. He previously co-authored the book Alabama Scoundrels: Outlaws, Pirates, Bushwhackers and Bandits.
