Virtual Event: Whale of a Tale
August 2, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
We’re finishing Summer Reading with one whale of a tale! Join literary historian Rob Velella as he dives into the world of sea adventures on Monday, August 2, @ 6 p.m. In this virtual program, he’ll explore why sea stories like Moby Dick were so popular among 19th-century readers, then show how authors like Herman Melville and even Edgar Allan Poe rode that tide by using nautical themes in their work.
