UCA professor promotes new book with 12-foot-long alligator gar

CONWAY, Ark. (UCA) - Fish-writer and University of Central Arkansas writing professor Mark Spitzer is driving around Arkansas with a 12-foot-long alligator gar on top of his car to promote his new book, Return of the Gar, just out from the University of North Texas Press.

Alligator gar, the largest member of the gar family, can grow 11 feet long and weigh more than 300 pounds ― and they’re right here in Arkansas.

A 92-year-old War Veteran, Beryl Wolfson, was one of the first men to liberate Jews from the Dakau concentration camp in 1945. And what he saw, he vowed to bring back and bring up, along with more than 40 other people in Russellville.

"I hope that they will learn. I hope they will learn to stand up for what is right," said
