This week, the Fargo Public Library is hosting two special events as part of the Three Communities, Two Books, One Art Exhibit (3.2.1) project in our community. First, join us for an informal discussion focused on the theme of “the quest”. The discussion, centered on Sena Jeter Naslund’s 1999 novel Ahab’s Wife or, the Star-Gazer, is set for Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at the downtown Main Library. Dr. Kelli Sassi, NDSU Assistant Professor of English and Education, will facilitate the discussion.
A second event, a film screening of regional filmmaker Greg Carlson’s documentary Inside the White Whale, is set for Sunday, Sept. 15 starting at 2 p.m. at the downtown Main Library. Carlson’s short film is about artist Matt Kish’s odyssey to illustrate each page of Melville’s classic Moby-Dick, a project he eventually titled Moby-Dick in Pictures. A discussion of the project will follow the film screening. Popcorn will be served.
