Book Discussion on “Moby-Dick” at Blue Hill Library
September 14 @ 6:00 pm
On Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 6 p.m. at the Blue Hill Public Library, a reading group for those interested in finishing the classic American novel “Moby-Dick” by Herman Melville will begin a series of five meetings.
Over the five meetings from September to November, we’ll read “Moby-Dick” or, “The Whale,” in four parts, facilitated by Matt Shaw of Blue Hill Books. Our group will share encouragement, laughs and wonder along the way. In the middle of our journey, Wyn Kelley will join us for a discussion session. Wyn is a member of the Literature Faculty at MIT, where her scholarship focuses on Herman Melville’s works in transatlantic contexts and on the intersections of traditional and new media.
The group will meet in person at the library where copies of the novel will be available. Blue Hill Books will also have copies available at a 20 percent discount. It is recommended, but not required, to read the Penguin Classics edition. Participants are encouraged to read the introduction in whichever version they choose, in advance of our first meeting.
This reading group is co-sponsored by Blue Hill Books and Blue Hill Public Library, is free to join, and open to everyone.
