ABOUT THE TWO SHOWS

 

Jurassic Heartbreak

By Matt Storrs

 

Matt Storrs has never loved anything more than his first love: dinosaurs. After romantic rejection in elementary school, Matt copes by starting a movement to advocate for his favorite dinosaur and get the governor of Arizona recalled.

 

Years later, after another failed romantic connection, a trip to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show puts Matt face to face with the illegal fossil trade. Matt unearths new knowledge that makes him question his first love. 

 

Will newfound knowledge allow him to forgive and find lasting love? You won’t have to wait 65 million years to find out.
