Learn about Japanese folk monsters—called yokai—with local yokai folklorist, illustrator, and author Matthew Meyer. Meyer has written two illustrated encyclopedias (available here) about Japanese ghosts and monsters. He also currently runs a Patreon project and maintains yokai.com to share yokai with the world.
This lecture includes an intro to Japanese folklore, yokai, and their origins, as well as tellings of a few short yokai tales.
Meyer’s books will also be available for purchase and signing at the event.
Refreshments will be provided. Dress warm—the event starts at sundown and it can get quite chilly.
