Book Discussion | Sailing Without Ahab: Melville Reimagined


Claim your space to attend this unique poetry reading and book talk with author Steve Mentz who has reimagined Herman Melville’s great American classic Moby-Dick, without the monomaniacal quest of Captain Ahab. In this event, Mentz as he charts a new course through a familiar epic aboard Pequod, the fictional 19th-century Nantucket whaling ship that, in this retelling, sails without its captain. Together you will journey through uncharted literary waters and explore Melville’s masterpiece in bold new light through a reading of selections from this cycle of 138 poems––one for each chapter of the original novel. These poems dive into oceanic chaos without the stabilizing focus of the Nantucket captain on the white whale, guided instead by waywardness and curiosity. We will hear how, directionless, these poems reach out to touch the oceanic expanse and depth in a meaningful way. This event will relinquish the original goals and obsessions captured in Moby-Dick and enjoy this poetic rethinking of a literary triumph. A Q&A and book signing with the author will follow the reading.

Concert | Catalan Sounds on Tour - - Outdoors


A vibrant showcase of the music of Catalonia. Sidonie, a Barcelona-based psych-pop trio, is known for songs that seamlessly blend Hindu music, surrealism, and rock. After more than 25 years together, their latest LP, Marc, Axel and Jes, strips their sound to its roots, packed with bracing two-and-a-half-minute jams that capture the healing power of a great rock record. The Balkan Paradise Orchestra, an all-female ensemble comprising wind and percussion players, takes the spirit of the Balkans and infuses it with various rhythms and worldwide traditions. Their new album, Nectar, explores the world of bees, riffing on themes of travel, teamwork, and personal and collective effort. The self-taught composer and multi-instrumentalist Lau Noah has been breaking hearts and turning heads with her voice and guitar in New York City since 2014, but broke out in 2019 with her debut on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series--the first Catalan artist to do so. The event is a unique opportunity to experience the rich and diverse Catalan music scene in New York.
