Join scholar Richard J. King for a discussion of Ahab's Rolling Sea, his journey through the natural history of Moby-Dick. From white whales to whale intelligence, giant squids, barnacles, albatross and sharks, King examines what Melville knew from his own experiences and the sources available to a reader in the mid-1800s, offering new insight not only into a cherished masterwork and its author, but also into our evolving relationship with the sea.

Venue: 92nd Street Y
