Tucson Author Finds 'A Love Story' in Moby-Dick
Published: Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 3:55pm
Herman Melville’s "Moby-Dick" is one of the most widely-read classic novels in the U.S. Maybe it was assigned to you in high school or you picked it up later.
In his new novel, "The Whale: A Love Story," Tucson author Mark Beauregard explores the struggles Melville was having completing "Moby-Dick" and how his intimate friendship with fellow writer Nathaniel Hawthorne inspired him.
Beauregard will be at Tucson's Antigone bookstore on Friday, Sept. 2, 2016.
