Join us for a discussion of In The Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick. Attend

"In the Heart of the Sea brings to new life the incredible story of the wreck of the whaleship Essex - an event as mythic in its own century as the Titanic disaster in ours, and the inspiration for the climax of Moby-Dick. In a harrowing page-turner, Nathaniel Philbrick restores this epic story to its rightful place in American history." --publisher
