Andrew Glass Book Signing
June 14, 2014
Illustrator Andrew Glass will visit the Museum Store June 14 from 3-5 p.m. to sign copies of Moby-Dick: Chasing the Great White Whale. Distilled into the form of an old sea shanty by award-winning author Eric Kimmel, and paired with Glass’ compelling and vivid paintings, this memorable retelling perfectly captures the essence and power of Herman Melville’s renowned novel for a new generation of readers.
Fifteen original illustrations by the artist are featured in the Museum’s new exhibition, “The Morgan Sails Again.” The exhibit opens June 14 in the Mallory Exhibit Hall at Mystic Seaport.
