“…Then early last year, “Expedition Unknown,” a television show on the Discovery Channel, did a special on “The Secret” that set off a new frenzy of treasure hunters.
“I’ve been making travel adventure shows for 10 years, and I’ve never seen anything like the reaction to that show,” said Josh Gates, the show’s host, who is a Tufts grad and a native of Manchester-by-the-Sea. “So many people contacted me, and a lot of them were from the Boston area because it’s long been believed that one of them was hidden there.”
The Krupat children, 12-year-old Molly and 10-year-old Jack, saw the episode and called their parents into the room, knowing this would be right up their father’s alley. Jason Krupat makes his living as a puzzle and game designer. Soon, the family began making weekend trips into the city to work on what had come to be known as “the Boston verse.”
Great read. Hidden treasure, a family’s quest, and ‘The Secret’ by Billy Baker Boston Globe, here.

Librarian, Carol Bender, Head of Youth Services, Manchester Public Library, reading Where in the World is Catherine Abigail by Michael LaPenna and illustrated by Leslie Galacar. The children from Magic Years were visiting Once Upon a Contest at Manchester Historical Museum.
They met special guest artist Leslie Galacar.
Tomorrow is the last day to catch the travel exhibition Once Upon a contest in Manchester. Explore fantastic new children’s books by local authors and artists at the lovely Manchester Historical Museum. Friday will also be the last chance to catch Leslie Galacar’s temporary work consisting of a series of intricate illustrations that progress from the entry to the main gallery. Can you find this one on site?
The exhibition changes with each installation as each locale and architecture is unique and special- as are the programs and public art component. The reading and art exhibit is coming to Essex next, opening on May 4th at TOHP Burnham Library.
Today’s program Seaside Saturdays: Cape Ann Reads Book Fun was enjoyed by all ages and featured the Once Upon a Contest group exhibition, stories and special guest artist, Juni VanDyke, who illustrated the If I Were series by James McKenna. Seaside Saturdays is a joint offering by Early Childhood Partners/CFCE, Manchester Public Library & Manchester Historical Museum. Once Upon a Contest Selections from Cape Ann Reads by the four libraries of Cape Ann is on display at Manchester Historical Museum through April 26th. In addition to the new and original books by local artists and writers, don’t miss Leslie Galacar’s four part public art sequence made just for this venue.
Bustle of arriving, exploring (nifty new museum display!), visting, settling, and seat selecting
Busy, busy- Children chose drawings VanDyke created especially for this event and set to work collaging.
