Moby-Dick Remixed: Celebrating Herman Melville’s 200th Birthday
Today marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Herman Melville! The Lee Library is celebrating by highlighting some amazing versions of his best-known work, Moby-Dick, including a screening of the 1956 film starring Gregory Peck. Besides film and television adaptations, Moby-Dick has inspired fine art, comic art, children’s literature, sci-fi, and even an opera. You can see a display of selected adaptations and artwork, along with a first edition of the novel, in the Special Collections exhibit Moby-Dick Remixed. The exhibit will be on display in the Special Collections lobby all through the month of August.
