A lecture by natural history writer Todd McLeish about his experiences studying and writing about narwhals, the rare whale with the spiral tusk. He will take his audience high above the Arctic Circle with teams of scientists 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 climate change is affecting the whales.  Copies of his new book will be available for purchase and signing.
