Mezrich has a new book coming out on July 4 -- and will be visiting Rhode Island on July 8. 

His new book, Woolly: The True Story of the Quest to Revive One of History’s Most Iconic Extinct Creatures, is already being made into a movie.

"I've always been obsessed with woolly mammoths -- I always wanted to be Michael Crichton,“ said Mezrich.

"[In this book], the scientists are the good guys, and they're making the woolly mammoth for good reasons.This will be different from other 'monsters-go-haywire' movies,” he said.
