RED HOOK, N.Y. – Author Thomm Quackenbush visited the Red Hook Library's Enchanted Cafe on Thursday to chat about the local myths and legends throughout the area.

Quackenbush covered myths like the Legend of Leatherman, a vagrant who reportedly wandered in a 360-mile route every 30 days in a suit of shoe leather, and the area's UFO issues of the 1980s. Even Bigfoot made an appearance.

Quackenbush has published four books and is also an editor and columnist.
