Why Read Moby Dick?

First half with author Nathaniel Philbrick; second half of the program Linda Gassenheimer with Ingrid Hoffmann.

10/10/13 - Thursday's Topical Currents begins with a discussion of what may be the greatest American novel:  Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.  The novel’s length and esoteric topic keeps modern readers at bay.  We’ll speak with Nathaniel Philbrick, author of WHY READ MOBY DICK?  And more.  Linda Gassenheimer celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with a visit from Univision celebrity chef Ingrid Hoffman.  Fred Tasker’s wine comments, as well.  That’s Topical Currents Wednesday at 1pm.
