Join author Todd McLeish in a multimedia presentation as he recounts his adventures studying the elusive narwhal, the rare Arctic whale with the spiral tusk. He will take his audience high above the Arctic Circle with teams of narwhal researchers seeking to solve the mysteries of the animal's migrations and debating the purpose of its tusk. He will also share insights about the importance of narwhals in Inuit culture and how the warming planet is affecting the species. Along the way you'll hear about the many other unique animals living in the narwhal's frozen world, from walruses and polar bears to bowhead and beluga whales. Copies of Todd's new narwhal book will be available for purchase and signing. This is a 16+ event.
