Join fellow Jumbos for light appetizers and drinks at the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15.

Come together to listen to the author, curator, and Jumbo aficionado Tufts Professor of Art History Andrew McClellan talk about the book titled Jumbo: Marvel, Myth and Mascot. This story tracks Jumbo’s remarkable journey, from his exodus out of Africa to the London Zoo. The book concludes with the story of Jumbo’s arrival to Tufts in March of 1889.

Following his conversation about the history of this book, we will have a small social reception, with food and drinks, where you will have the opportunity to purchase Jumbo: Marvel, Myth and Mascot from Professor McClellan and socialize with other Jumbos.

We hope to see you there!
