Moby on Nantucket

It was another great Moby-Dick Marathon, jointly sponsored by the Nantucket Atheneum and Nantucket Historical Association.  Here’s a pic of David Lazarus, island artist and actor extraordinaire, reading the final chapter in the Great Hall of the Atheneum, approximately 25 hours after I kicked things off by reading the first two chapters.  David’s sketch of a whale ramming a ship graces the title page of In the Heart of the Sea.
