“The Ocean’s Skin” with Philip Hoare

NHA welcomes author Philip Hoare for a lecture drawing on his latest book, RISINGTIDEFALLINGSTAR. A professor of Creative Writing at the University of Southampton, UK and curator of Moby-Dick Big Read (a free online audio version of Melville’s book), Hoare looks at the ways in which we relate to the sea’s natural history; it’s whales, birds, as well as its myths.

The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation of it among all audiences.
