Moby Dick is prevalent

It absolutely astonishes me how much Moby Dick is in the news and out there in the public.

I kid you not--tonight--

Event Date(s)
Thursday, July 22 at 8:00 PM.


41 Main St.
East Hampton, NY 11937
Phone: 631-324-4939
Description: Alec Baldwin reads "Moby Dick"
Reading from Herman
Melville's, "Moby Dick," with Alec Baldwin

Why the heck is Alec Baldwin reading from Moby Dick? I don't have anything against Alec Baldwin. He's fine. The event is fine, a public reading. But why is Alec Baldwin reading from the book? Is there a movie coming out?

Turns out that Baldwin has also been interviewed about it recently.
Just on July 15 of this year, 2010, he talks about the book on the site but I can't access the article because I don't subscribe (what a load of malarkey that is--subscribing to a site where I can't read any articles to see if I would like it...)
I found a blog site of a person going to this reading and I have emailed the blogger for more information. Can't wait to find out more.
