Tusk: Uncovering a Mystery in the Maine

The Conversation

Talking about his new book “Mystery Tusk: Searching for Elephants in the Maine Woods.” The story begins with the search for a mysterious tusk that seems to have two conflicting histories: one ancient and one modern. Gary’s search for the truth led him into the woods of northern Maine as he uncovered the truth behind this amazing find. Gary has created beautiful and informative illustrations to accompany the story and we will be having conversations about his work both as a curator and illustrator and this amazing story.
