Why James Renner investigates monsters and myths

Author and journalist James Renner spent years collecting stories about the weird and wonderful denizens of this state for his book, It Came from Ohio: True Tales of the Weird, Wild and Unexplained.

On Monday, he visited Mentor Public Library and discussed the Loveland Frog, Lake Erie Monster, the Melonheads of Kirtland and other myths and monsters from the Buckeye state.

He also talked about how we went from writing true crime stories to investigating tales of moth men.

If you want, you can check out It Came from Ohio, as well as Renner's true-crime stories or his mystery novel, from Mentor Library.
