Moby Dick Book Club

  • Albany Pump Station 10 Quackenbush Square Albany, NY, 12207 United States (map)

Have you ever wanted to read Moby Dick, but were too intimidated? Or is the novel a treasured favorite and you’re ready for a re-read? All are welcome for a fun discussion of the American classic on White Whale Wednesdays!  To celebrate Herman Melville’s 200th birthday, HAF, Discover Albany, and the New York State Writers Institute are hosting a Moby Dick Book Club, where we commit to completing the novel over a period of six months. We’ll chat for an hour with a Melville enthusiast over a pint, and then enjoy a Melville/Moby Dick centered program. Don’t have time for both? Feel free to come to just one part of the evening. The stalwart souls who do it all will receive a fun prize to commemorate their accomplishment.

$5 HAF Members/ $10 General Public (per night)
