The Jersey Devil – William Sprouse
For centuries, the story of the Jersey Devil has been part of the culture of southern New Jersey. A fire-breathing monster with the head of a horse, bat wings and the body of a kangaroo. The creature is said to be the thirteenth child of a Mother Leeds, born in 1735 when the woman put a curse on her unfortunate offspring. Informed at a tender age by his grandmother (aka BeBop) that he is distantly related to the beast, author Bill Sprouse explores the story behind the tale of his family’s connection to the famous monster. Copies of his book, “The Domestic Life of the Jersey Devil: or, BeBop’s Miscellany” will be available.
