Short Stories On The Lawn – Idylls of the Sea (Adults)

Date/Time
Date(s) - Saturday, July 30
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Categories


Saturday, July 30 at 3:00 pm on the library lawn.

Join the Great Beginnings Book Club for a special discussion of a classic short story and to enjoy the summer weather outside! Copies of the short story will be available at the library for pickup.

July marks our Summer Reading Program. This year, the theme is “Oceans of Possibility,” and we consider the watery part of the world with selections from Frank Bullen’s Idylls of the Sea and Richard Henry Dana Jr.’s Two Years Before the Mast. Both authors – the first Britsh and the latter American – saw much of the world during careers at sea in the 19th century. Their accounts of life aboard sailing ships and literary sketches of sea fancies proved to be be popular with the public and influential on later nautical authors including Herman Melville and Joseph Conrad.

Printouts of the selections will be available for pickup at the library. Since the works of both authors are in the public domain, you can freely download and read the works in full at the following links.

Two Years Before the Mast https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2055

Refreshments will be served.

This program is held in addition to the Great Beginnings Book Club regular meetings on the second Tuesday of each month. If you are interested in the normal book discussion for July, please register here.

Space is limited. Please register online at: https://moffatlibrary.org/events-calendar/ or call (845) – 496 – 5483 ext. 325 if you have any questions or need assistance registering for this event.
