Finished Moby Dick or The Whale by Herman Melville all 1946 pages. I enjoyed it so much. Whaling is quite gory and the life of the sailors so difficult. Melville's language is so mesmerizing. I appreciate it much more as I have aged. I started Barkskins by Annie Proulx. I feel like I am reading the lives of Ivan's (hubby) ancestors. U.P. loggers.
I went to a gig at the library where eighteen area authors showcased their books. I bought the play Willpower. Iris played the lead part the first time the play was presented in Marquette.
