**Seating Reservation and masks required for in-person attendance, limited to 25. A Zoom Option will also be available to those who would prefer to participate remotely**
In collaboration with the Wendell Gilley Museum, we invite you to join us in a talk and book signing with Swan’s Island author and artist Gary Hoyle on Wednesday, October 19 at 6pm.
“Mystery Tusk: Searching for Elephants in the Maine Woods” is the true story of author Gary Hoyle’s search for a mysterious tusk that seems to have two conflicting histories – one ancient, and one modern. His search for the truth led him to direct the first excavation of a mammoth in Maine and to uncover historical facts about an elephant that inspired P. T. Barnum. This book isn’t just for science and history buffs but for any curious general reader.
Copies of “Mystery Tusk” will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
Most of Gary Hoyle’s work has been at the interface of art and science. For 28 years he was an exhibits artist and the Curator of Natural History at the Maine State Museum. His part-time project work has been for institutions from New England to Iowa, including the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
