Ahab Beckons! Moby Dick (Virtual Program)

Join author and lecturer Abby Mendelson for Ahab Beckons!: Moby Dick, or The Whale a three part series June 11, 18 and 25 (register below for all lectures). 

Some have called Herman Melville’s massive opus the quintessential American novel, the well-spring from which every other piece of our fiction grows: sprawling, unsparing, obsessed and obsessive. Coded into a seafaring tale of a mad captain and his mixed-race crew, it’s American insanity, destruction of the natural world, imperialism, barbarism – and brotherhood and survival. As irresistible as it is overwhelming, there was never a better time to read it in-depth, in an annotated edition.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of Mt. Lebanon Public Library.

These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.  

Registration is required. By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.
