We have a whole variety of programs and events running throughout the year. Keep you eyes on our Facebook and be sure to join our mailing list below.

Moby Dick Book Club

Currently we have our Moby Dick Book Club running until September.

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 at the Albany Pump Station, where we commit to completing the novel over a period of six months.

We’ll chat for an hour with a local 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.

Attendees should have read at least the first 100 pages prior to the first meeting, and then 100 pages every following month. Anyone is welcome to join at anytime.

$5 HAF Members and $10 General Public per night / 5:30-7.30pm

Albany Pump Station, 19 Quackenbush Square, Albany, NY 12207

Wednesdays: April 10, May 8, June 12, July 10, August 14, and September 11
