Join the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum for a Book Talk Event with Local Author Darrell Hartman on Thursday, March 28!

Darrell Hartman was born and raised in Maine. Published in 2023, Battle of Ink and Ice is Mr. Hartman’s first book.

Battle of Ink and Ice tells the true story of American explorers Frederick Cook and Robert Peary, both of whom claimed in 1909 to have discovered the North Pole. It’s also a tale of warring newspapers, because each man was backed by a rival New York City daily, the New York Herald and the New York Times. It’s a sixty-year saga of frostbite and fake news that has something to tell us about the media-saturated world we inhabit today.
