On-site: Moby-Dick Marathon with Canio’s Cultural Cafe
September 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:45 pm EDT
This event will take place in the Lower Level Program Room at the library. Masks required.
The library is once again happy to collaborate with Canio’s Cultural Cafe for their annual Moby-Dick Reading Marathon! Join us at the library on Saturday, September 11 from 10:00 am – 12:45 pm to listen to scheduled readers. You can sign up to read HERE. Full details and schedule from Canio’s is below.
Canio’s popular MOBY-DICK MARATHON is back & will be bigger than ever this September, as we gather at several Sag Harbor institutions. We so look forward to sharing this magnificent book with everyone particularly at these times. No other work speaks so eloquently of themes we continue to wrestle with: social & economic injustice, moral turpitude, religious hypocrisy, environmental conservation and more. The Marathon will take place at Canio’s Books, Eastville Community Historical Society, John Jermain Library, Old Whalers’ Church, The Church, and the Whaling Museum. Please see the full schedule including Pre-Marathon events at caniosculturalcafe.org.
