Library Hosts “Moby-Dick” Discussion Thursday, July 25

Herman Melville wrote “Moby-Dick” 160 years ago, yet the themes of this classic American novel still resonate today. Join us at the Fargo Public Library for an informal discussion centered on the theme of “obsession”. The discussion, part of the Three Communities, Two Books, One Art Exhibit (3.2.1) project is set for Thursday, July 25 at 7 p.m. at the downtown Main Library. Karen Joan Kohoutek will lead the informal discussion which will attempt to answer questions about larger subjects such as the nature of leadership, tyranny and democracy. All ages are invited read “Moby- Dick” and participate in this and other upcoming 3.2.1 events. Light refreshments will be served. For details, contact Karen at (701) 241-1472.
